Legacy of the Rorkes Drift Heroe's Volume 2.

The 2nd volume of Kris Wheatleys series is the same format as the 1st ,a really interesting read about the fortunes of the lesser known defenders and their decendents .Not so much info about Rorke's Drift in this one but some cracking stories of the trials and tribulations of the veterans .
This volume covers :

Thomas Collins
Thomas Lewis
Thomas Levi Luddington
William Neville
William Partridge
Alfred Saxty
Arthur Sears.
