Full Description:

It is said that Charles George Dennison saw more active service in the British nineteenth-century colonial wars for southern Africa than any other man. Considered a frontiersman equal in standing to any legendary figure of the American West, he rose from an ordinary trooper to a British officer whose advice was sought by top British officials of the day. Sadly, the much wounded and decorated hero died in obscurity, buried in a forgotten grave in what is now Zimbabwe. This book offers the first complete version of Dennison's journal ever published.

 

Charles George Dennison, born in 1844 at Craddock, Cape Colony, was a first-generation descendant of 1820 settler immigrants. Ron Lock, a guide to the Anglo-Zulu and Boer war battlefields, has written widely on military history. Peter Quantrill is an officer in the Gurkha Rifles in South Africa. They are coauthors of the internationally acclaimed Zulu Victory and Zulu Vanquished, among other books.
