Zulu & Basuto Wars Roy Dutton

Question: does anyone have this book on the shelves? How is this book on the level of accounts of the campaigns and the troop deployments please?
I would be looking for a book that contains more then the Medal Rolls but also gives a good read on the campaign.
Thinking about something along the lines of David Biggins books (Elandslaagte, Talana, Kimberley). Does it compare?
Thanks for the information!
Best regards
Roel

If you don't want the medal roll, IMHO you might enjoy
Narrative of the Field Operations Connected with the Zulu War of 1879, I see there's a copy for ~£10 on abebooks.

Thanks for the pointer Rob. Put that one on my list as well as addtl. Am interested in the medal roll in combination with "the story" hence the question how Dutton's work matches up on that second part. Noone read it/has it?
