Praise for Zulu Hart: (Zulu Hart 1)

  • 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
