I would recommend this book for young readers as they admire King Shaka's bravery and attitude to life. Study revealed to me how complicated was the region and how contested the history of a place and people could be.For in the space of twelve years, he organized an immense army of skilled and disciplined warriors, conquering and pacifying a territory larger than Europe. According to tradition, Shaka was conceived during an act of what began as ukuhlobonga, a form of sexual foreplay without penetration allowed to unmarried couples, also known as "the fun of the roads" (ama hlay endlela), during which the lovers were "carried away" Due to persecution as a result of his illegitimacy, Shaka spent his childhood in his mother's settlements where he was initiated into an ibutho lempi (fighting unit). This book is a biography of the founder of the Zulu Nation, his methods of combining small tribal groups into a single cohesive nation, and his methods of defending this nation. after the year of mourning to his death - When he was himself again he went back to his earlier personality.

Margaret Atwood takes the art of storytelling to new heights in a dazzling novel that unfolds layer by astonishing layer and concludes in a brilliant and wonderfully satisfying twist.Shaka went on to further refine the ibutho system used by Dingiswayo and others and, with Mthethwa's support over the next several years, forged alliances with his smaller neighbours, to counter the growing threat from Ndwandwe raids from the north. He seeks to evaluate not just Shaka’s nation-building but what followed, most especially the Anglo-Zulu war that culminated in the destruction of the Zulu military at Isandhlwana. In the early nineteenth century the Zulu nation began a period of rapid expansion, and King Shaka began to reform his forces into regular military units. Now king of the southern chiefdoms, Shaka seeks to uplift his people, consolidate alliances, and expand the reach of his power.

Being unable to match the dancing talents of those around him and with the Zulu disco around the corner, he feels the pressure to find a beat that could work with his two left feet!He was fair but harsh and ruled in compassion and incorparated conquered tribes into the Zulu nation.
