"We can cordially recommend this book to all who care for stories of battle, murder, and sudden death. Mr. Mitford, who has already made his mark, handles these South Africansubjects with a masterful hand. The account of theattack by Zulus on the Basutu kraals is a splendid bit ofwriting. There is no question as to the interest of thestory or the ability with which it is written."-- Vanity Fair.
