About William Penn Symons

Captain William Penn Symons (July 1843 - October 1899) was a British army officer who lost his life at the battle of Talana Hill during the second Boer war. His first combat was in South Africa during the 9th Xhosa war (1877-78). In 1879 he took part in the Zulu wars which this book documents, the merest chance saved him from certain death at Isandlwana.
