Ian Knight is a leading international expert on the Anglo-Zulu War. He has written, co-written or edited over 30 books, including several in the Osprey Men-at-Arms, Elite, Warrior and Campaign series. He studied Afro-Caribbean Studies at Kent University, and is an Honorary Research Associate of the Natal Museum and Vice President of the Anglo Zulu War Historical Society. He has also contributed to a number of television documentaries on the war. In 2000 he was the historian advising the Glasgow University team who made the first archaeological survey of the Isandlwana battlefield.


"Ian Knight is the author of a previous Fortress volume... Like that book, this one is unusually well written, combining technical description with a fascinating narrative... This is one of the most interesting and enjoyable books I have read in this entire series, and it is whole-heartedly recommended to anyone." --Bolling Smith, Coast Defense Journal (March 2010) "In this book, author Ian Knight covers the history of conflict on these islands and complete design and implementation of styles of the Maori pas (or wooden pallisades) and shows how the various works were modified or improved to meet the needs of the areas in which they were placed... The book looks at the design and development, the principles of defense, what it was like to live in these walled structures and how they performed their task in war... All of this is additionally enhanced by photos of the current sites, period art work and the illustrations of Adam Hook. In all, a superb addition to the Fortress series and a book that I believe you will find interesting." --Scott Van Aken, (August 2009)
