The action is brisk enough to keep pages turning, while Saul David's credentials as a military historian lend the conflict both accuracy and authenticity * Seven * Plenty of action and bloody death, incompetent and scheming officers, and a brace of lovely women tugging at Hart's heart make for a terrific yarn * Sun Herald, Australia * Let's hope that Saul David's new character will be reappearing...A terrific adventure and a genre that goes from strength to strength. * Rodney Troubridge, March 2009 Bookseller's Choice, Bookseller * The details of the l879 campaign are superbly laid out, and this is a real education * Daily Telegraph * David knows his stuff, historically, and there is much to admire in his evocation of 19th Century warfare * Mail on Sunday * David's novel is brimming with interesting historical detail, and where his portraits are of actual historical figures, they convince totally. It is an informative and likeable read * Literary Review * For a well-established historian of the Victorian army, turning one's hand from non-fiction to fiction is no easy matter. Saul David, however, crosses that bridge highly competently. This is a fast-moving and succinct account of the machinations and betrayals that surrounded that fateful day in 1879. * Daily Mail * A Victorian adventure as big as the veldt and chewier than buffalo biltong . . . real figures of the period are endowed with motive, intent and dialogue that may be fictitious but are entirely convincing * Sunday Telegraph * David is a popular historian with a rare talent for turning a history lesson into a rattling good yarn. This is an unashamed crowd-pleaser with a compelling, sexy hero who could give Cornwell's Sharpe a run for his money. * The Times * Saul David has already shown himself to be a first-rate historian, now he proves to be a masterly story-teller. ZULU HART left me wanting more...much more * Bernard Cornwell * 'Gems like this are too rare. I was hooked in ten pages.' * Conn Iggulden *
