'Gems like this are too rare. I was hooked in ten pages.' Conn Iggulden

GEORGE HART just wants to serve his Queen and honour his family. It's not that simple.

BASTARD
He doesn't know his father, only that he's a pillar of the Establishment. His beloved mother is half Irish, half Zulu.

ZULU
In a Victorian society rife with racism and prejudice, George's dark skin spells trouble to his regimental commander.

WARRIOR
But George has soldiering in his blood - the only question is what he's really fighting for: ancestry or Empire. In the heat of battle he must decide . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Gems like this are too rare. I was hooked in ten pages.' * Conn Iggulden *
Saul David has already shown himself to be a first-rate historian, now he proves to be a masterly story-teller. ZULU HART left me wanting more...much more * Bernard Cornwell *
David is a popular historian with a rare talent for turning a history lesson into a rattling good yarn. This is an unashamed crowd-pleaser with a compelling, sexy hero who could give Cornwell's Sharpe a run for his money. * The Times *
A Victorian adventure as big as the veldt and chewier than buffalo biltong . . . real figures of the period are endowed with motive, intent and dialogue that may be fictitious but are entirely convincing * Sunday Telegraph *
For a well-established historian of the Victorian army, turning one's hand from non-fiction to fiction is no easy matter. Saul David, however, crosses that bridge highly competently. This is a fast-moving and succinct account of the machinations and betrayals that surrounded that fateful day in 1879. * Daily Mail *
David's novel is brimming with interesting historical detail, and where his portraits are of actual historical figures, they convince totally. It is an informative and likeable read * Literary Review *
David knows his stuff, historically, and there is much to admire in his evocation of 19th Century warfare * Mail on Sunday *
The details of the l879 campaign are superbly laid out, and this is a real education * Daily Telegraph *
Let's hope that Saul David's new character will be reappearing...A terrific adventure and a genre that goes from strength to strength. * Rodney Troubridge, March 2009 Bookseller's Choice, Bookseller *
Plenty of action and bloody death, incompetent and scheming officers, and a brace of lovely women tugging at Hart's heart make for a terrific yarn * Sun Herald, Australia *
The action is brisk enough to keep pages turning, while Saul David's credentials as a military historian lend the conflict both accuracy and authenticity * Seven *

“One of the worst books I've ever read”

Words cannot describe how much I loathed this book. From start to finish I just found it abysmal in all departments, the writing, the plot, the characters, everything. At one point I threw the book across the room... More

“Hard going”

The author is an established and talented historian and this is his first venture into fiction. The front cover has a strong endorsement from Bernard Cornwell so I was optimistic that I would enjoy this.
