If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, but make allowance for their doubting too’

The Battle of Isandlwana, 22nd January 1879. British defeat or Zulu victory?


Scarcely 10 days after the invasion of Zululand began, disaster struck at Isandlwana.


Whilst Lord Chelmsford was away with 60% of the force in search of the main Zulu Army, the remaining force of 1 800 British soldiers was overwhelmed by 25 000 Zulu warriors.


Imagine the courage of facing modern rifles with spear and shield?


In less than 2 hours more than 1 300 British soldiers lay dead in what some view as the greatest military defeat the British suffered at the hand of a native army in their entire colonial history.
