The White Zulu by Howard Whitehouse

What a ripping good yarn! This book is a must read for any adventure gamer, British colonial history aficionado, historical fiction fan, and Zulu War enthusiast. Written by the well known wargame rules author and Game Master extraordinaire Mr Howard Whitehouse.

The book is very well written and is extremely entertaining. The main character, Colonel Binky Bagshot is fictional though he lives through the real life events centered around the actions of Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift in Anglo Zulu War of 1879. The adventures and misadventures of Colonel Bagshot are reminiscnet of the famesd Flashman series though
pleasantly different. The narrative transitions from the main character in his present day life discussing his service in the war to the actual events he lived through. 

Howard's writing style is excellent, flows well, and is a really enjoyable read. The dry humor and very well researched historical events make it spot on for me! I can't say enough positive things about this book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
