It is almost unprecedented to be able to source the whole of 1879 in The Graphic Illustrated Newspaper and The Illustrated London News publications. Coverage is extensive and includes early reports from Rorkes Drift, Isandlwhana, Isandula, Ekowe, Ulundi and all the other notable aspects of this conflict. As well as a large amount ofhistory from the Zulu War there is also the War in Afghanistan which is heavily reported. This is why this particular year is the most sought after of the genre.
