End of a Dynasty

The Last Days of the Prince Imperial, Zululand 1879

By Paul Deleage

Contributions by: Bill Guest

Paul Deleage, a young correspondent attached to the prestigious French newspaper Le Figaro, was sent to report on the Prince Imperial's African adventure during the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879. In fact, Deleage was the only French journalist to cover the war. His account of the three months he spent with the British High Command, to which Prince Louis Napoleon was seconded, was published in French, 125 years ago. This translation from the original - Trois Mois Chez les Zoulous - brings to life an extraordinary piece of history. It provides a unique and intimate picture of the last few months in the life of the French Prince Imperial, before his death by an assegai spear in a lonely valley in Africa.
