    1. Mr. Ritter has put Shaka's reign in its proper prospective, using 1st hand accounts of people that lived during his life. Using diaries of Englishmen who lived among the Zulu's during Shaka,s reign. He also was fortunate to have the exprtise and papers from paternal grandfather, and the oral histories from Zulu elders. To really evaluate the life of Shaka you have to breakdown his life into three parts. #1 before the death of his mother, #2 during the year of mourning of the death of his mother, [...]


    2. A fascinating book about a fascinating man and culture. I was left with the feeling that, had Shaka been living in, say, Europe and been white he would have been heaped with long lasting praise as an innovator, master tactician, talented General and empire builder - he would be spoken of in the same terms as Napoleon or Alexander The Great or the armies of Rome. However, he lived in Africa and was black and, except for a select few, no one outside of Africa knew of his amazing achievements, his [...]


    3. This one is in my top 5 of all time. Such an interesting character in history. Shaka Zulu was a contemporary of Napolean and controlled more land mass than Napolean ever did. Great stories in this book, and really interesting background on why the Zulu nation is so proud today.


    4. At the ouset, I felt this book might be a little too gruesome but the 9/10 year old class who I read it to really seemed to enjoy it. It involves a tale of valour and self discipline. Shaka is a young African boy who makes it his life ambition to bring an army forward through discipline and hard work. He is an aggressive militarian who makes his army march barefoot but his victories rival over those of Napolean. He built a massive Zulu empire which was larger than Europe. Many of the young liste [...]


    5. The author was born in 1890 in, what is now known as Zulu land, and wrote this book in 1955. After the first Boar War the author's father was appointed Native Commissioner and the author learned the Zulu language from his nurses and the time he spent with Zulu families. "This book is a biography of the founder of the Zulu Nation, his methods of combining small tribal groups into a single cohesive nation, and his methods of defending this nation. To me this was a great read about history of South [...]


    6. I have read this before but this time it was merely for research purposes.One of the better texts regarding Shaka, probably because the author was closer to his subject than many late comers and knows the Zulu traditions and oral history well. He leans probably a touch too much on the generous side regarding some of Shaka's excesses but his knowledge of the culture cannot be faulted.Nowadays it would probably be written in a more dramatic, less scholarly fashion but it is informative, readable a [...]


    7. Nice and readable history book, part story and part history, covering Shaka's life from youth to death and some of the factors which may have influenced his actions. Also covers some of the battles which made him so successful. Author seems to take his side, defending him against the bad reputation other authors have given him.


    8. Fascinating book about the founder of the Zulu nation. What an amazing story superb book that you want to re-read again and again.It reads live a novel full of action full of interesting facts


    9. Proceed with caution: not current or reliable history; also a "white" view of Shaka, tapping into black oral narratives (for the current scoop, see Caroline Hamliton, Terrific Majesty). Still a gripping read, however, of a figure who continues to loom in South African and global consciousness.


    10. This a great historical book. It is about an African tribe lead by Shaka Zulu, their great leader. The culture of the tribe and how it grew under his rule are so interesting. I highly recommend this book, especially to people interested in history and learning about a culture.


    11. Still busy with this one, but a good one to learn about the history and culture of our own Zulu people and the dirty politics of the British, even in 1824!
