The second edition with both sheets of the large folding map of Zululand. When the first edition was issued in 1881 the second sheet of the map was not ready and the book was published without it. 1500 copies of this second edition were printed. 'Any military account of the British Invasion of Zululand must take into basic consideration the Intelligence Branch of the War Office's Narrative of the Field Operations Connected with the Zulu War of 1879 which, whilst not accurate in all particulars and evasive over contentious issues, nevertheless traces the progress of the campaign in detail, gives figures for the British forces, their casualties, expenses and so on.'
