“Zulu Rising: The Epic Story of iSandlwana and Rorke’s Drift” is a historical book written by Ian Knight, published in 2010. The book provides a detailed account of two significant battles that took place during the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879: the Battle of iSandlwana and the Battle of Rorke’s Drift.

The Battle of iSandlwana, fought on January 22, 1879, was a decisive victory for the Zulu Kingdom over the British Empire. It is often regarded as one of the greatest defeats suffered by a modern army against indigenous forces. Knight meticulously examines the events leading up to the battle, the strategies employed by both sides, and the brutal and chaotic nature of the conflict itself.

Following the Battle of iSandlwana, the British garrison at Rorke’s Drift, a small mission station, came under attack by Zulu forces. The subsequent Battle of Rorke’s Drift, fought on the same day as iSandlwana, saw a small British force successfully defend the outpost against overwhelming odds. Knight provides a comprehensive analysis of this iconic engagement, exploring the tactics, leadership, and heroism displayed by both British soldiers and Zulu warriors.

“Zulu Rising” offers readers a vivid and compelling narrative of these pivotal events in colonial history, shedding light on the complexities of the Anglo-Zulu War and its lasting impact on both British and Zulu societies. The book is praised for its thorough research, engaging writing style, and balanced portrayal of the participants involved in these historic battles.
