Description: Wordsworth, (Ware, Hertfordshire, 1997).. 146 pp, 8vo (8 1/2"H), soft cover. ISBN 1853266736 B&w photos, map, and reproductions. "..although the Defence of Rorke's Drift falls far short of being a turning-point of history, it certainly represented the epitome of the bravery and dogged e ndurance of the British soldier fighting for Queen and Empire, and as such provided just the sort of publicity Mr Gladstone needed at that moment. Michael Glover shows how this undoubted act of bravery was exploited for political ends and why i t r e sulted in the award of more VC's than any other single action since the medal was instituted. Mr. Glover has written a 'military history' with a difference." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor s cu ff on s pine, one very small soft corner crease. Very Good+.
