The Zulu Wars - A Brief History by Andrew Knight is about the Anglo-Zulu clash which had its origin in the year 1874. Sir Henry Bartle Frere was appointed as the High Commissioner to South Africa in 1874. His main mission was to bring together the African tribes and kingdoms under British rule. In the mission, he gets the most opposition from the Zulu tribe. He decides to go to war with the Zulus. Though the British face a lot of setbacks, finally they emerge triumphant and Zululand becomes a part of the British empire.

The book is packed with historical events, dates, and happenings. There are not many books written on Zululand and the Zulu tribe and this one reveals a lot about the tribe and their kingdom. There are a multitude of details in the book that are not known to many of us. It is a kind of educational trip while reading the story. The author has made it simple and understandable. History lovers will find this book very interesting.

On the whole the book is educational and informative. It can be kept in school and college libraries. It would be helpful for children doing projects or wanting to get some references for their history lessons.
