Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

Well, evaluating battle strategy and re-fighting a battle is not a new idea - it is almost exactly like playing and evaluating games of chess.
This is what cadets in any military academy will do as part of their studies and there are usually innumerable combinations of plays that can be tried.
An episode of Time Commanders based on iSandlwana, sadly, would have been very, very short and very, very boring.
Playing the role of commander at iSandlwana, all you would have to do differently to the commanders on 22-1-1879, would be to hurry up your breakfast, order the troops to form a square, and you would beat the Zulu army EVERY time!

Even I would be delighted to go and test my Generalship with my modern army and guns, against shields and spears - bring it on!
However, against Rommel, Alexander the Great, Napoleon or any other equally equipped commander with a modern army, I am afraid my remf brain would be embarrassingly exposed every single time.
