This is the original unedited manuscript of the 1985 best-selling novel by Joshua Sinclair which was adapted by him into the legendary television series by the same name. This true story chronicles with mythic detail the life of Shaka Zulu, the greatest African leader in history. Framed around Queen Victoria's decision on England's political stance towards the Zulu Nation, the novel starts with Shaka's illegitimate birth, taking us through his difficult childhood, his obsessive attachment to his mother Nandi, to his overthrow of the leadership of the Zulu nation.
He was an illegitimate prince who reclaimed his birthright with brilliance and brutality. He created a vast new nation from warring tribes and forged an army that defied the most powerful empire on earth. He was Shaka Zulu. Brought to life in an epic, 10-part production, the story of the legendary, 19th-century African king became one of the most compelling and controversial miniseries in television history.
