Product Details

As the thatched roof of the hospital, damp from days of rain, finally caught fire, and the Zulus burst in through the outside doors, the able-bodied defenders fought a desperate hand-to-hand rearguard action, retiring from room to room. Helped by those sick still able to walk, they carried or dragged the remaining patients with them until, at last, there was nowhere to go but outside, into the night. One by one the patients were bundled out through a high, small window to land in the yard beyond, once the centre of the British position, but now abandoned, since the rest of the command had fallen back to the defences in front of the storehouse. From there, helping one another as best they could, and covered by fire from the garrison, they ran the gauntlet across thirty yards of open ground, towards the fragile safety afforded by the biscuit-box barricade, raked by Zulu fire and thrown spears. --Ian Knight, Zulu War author, historian and advisor to W. Britain.
