The Zulu Kingdom and the Boer Invasion of 1837-1840 by John Laband

--:--
Thanks for clicking play on Pagecast, a book-centred podcast series brought to you by Jonathan Ball Publishers.

In this episode, Highly qualified and experienced Information specialist and Historian Graham Dominy chats with respected historian and author John Laband regarding his latest book The Boer Invasion of the Zulu Kingdom.

This invasion in 1837, of the Zulu kingdom by Boers migrating from the British Cape Colony, and the massacres, battles and civil war that ensued as the Zulu resisted the settlers was a critical moment in South African history.

Changing perceptions in a post-colonial world requires the reassessment of wars of colonial aggression, but there is no book in English that engages with the war between the Boers and Zulu in its entire context or takes the Zulu evidence into proper account.

This work attempts to do so.

Enjoy the episode!
