Firebird Books, 1994 - 192 pages
By looking at the lives and military campaigns of four great warriors, this book paints a picture of Southern Africa before the Europeans arrived. It features: Shaka of the Zulu, Africa's legendary hero, and the instigator of Zulu greatness and nationhood; Maqomo of the Xhosa - a master of guerilla warfare and the most daring and talented military leader of his age; Mzilikazi of the Matabele - he fought the Zulus, the Sotho and the Boers, and finally settled in Zimbabwe; Moeshoeshoe of the BaSotho - in the 1830s, the most powerful leader west of the Drakensberg Mountains.
