Synopsis: It was said of George Dennison that he had seen more active service in southern Africa than any other living man. An eminent soldier cast from a colonial mould of bitter experience, rather than of a formal military education, he was also a frontiersman equal in standing to any legendary figure of the American West. His military career saw him rise from an uncouth trooper with the Bloemfontein Rangers to, fifty years later, a distinguished officer whose advice was sought by the likes of Lord Kitchener, Sir Garnet Wolseley and other British military names of fame. During this time Dennison encountered many foes, some he would have known as neighbours, or men who had lately been his comrades-in-arms. He fought against Afrikaners, Dutchmen, Voortrekkers and the Boers. His black foes were also diverse; the stealthy Xhosa of the eastern Cape; the battle-axe wielding Basutos from their lofty kingdom in the clouds; the Transvaal baPedi, the masters of fortification, and most impressive of all, the amaZulu warriors of King Cetshwayo. In Zulu Frontiersman, Dennison recounts his remarkable exploits in rich and lively prose. Originally published in 1904 in abridged form (under the title A Fight to the Finish) his memoirs have now been expertly reworked by Ron Lock and Peter Quantrill in order to reinstate some of the fascinating details missing from the earlier published account, including for example Dennison's involvement in and dramatic escape from the battle of Hlobane.

About the Author: Charles George Dennison, born in 1844 at Craddock, Cape Colony, was a first-generation descendant of 1820 settler immigrants.

Book Description HB 304 ppPublished Price £19.99 An autobiography that will delight the many fans of the Zulu and Boer wars. George Dennison, its author, was a rugged frontiersman who took on a host of enemies - from Boers to Xhosa and Basutos as well as Zulus - during his varied career as a rough, tough colonial soldier in southern Africa. Rising from an untutored soldier in the ranks of the Bloemfontein Rangers, by the end of his career DennisonÕs expertise was sought after by such distinguished conventional soldiers as Lord Kitchener and Sir Garnet Wolseley. In this book Dennison recounts his colourful fighting career in prose as rough and ready as the man must have been himself. For the rich flavour of fighting and trekking in the raw few books can beat this one. Straight out of the pages of a John Buchan novel. Seller Inventory # 21046
