Zulus & Egyptians: a British Officer's Experiences During the Zulu War, 1879 and the Egyptian War, 1882----Campaigning in South Africa an (Paperback)
A British officer's outstanding recollections of three Victorian campaigns
This book of military recollections is quite simply excellent and essential to every library on the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879. The author was an officer of the 22nd Regiment, but was also on Major-General Thesiger's (later Lord Chelmsford) staff. He served during the Kaffir War of 1877-8, seeing action in the field before returning to Britain. When the Zulu War broke out he returned to South Africa arriving after the disaster of Isandlwana had taken place. Molyneux soon saw service in company with the Naval Brigade, shared adventure with the legendary John Dunn, and fought at Ginghilovo. His descriptions of that engagement are both detailed and gripping. He knew the ill-fated, Prince Imperial and took part in the search for his body. Molyneux's Zulu War concluded when he was present at the Battle of Ulundi. In 1882 Molyneux was posted to Egypt where he took part in the Battle of Tel-el-Kebir. This unique Leonaur edition includes a detailed description of Tel-el-Kebir by James Grant. With maps and illustrations.
