 The continuation of the war...

The continuation of the war it was possible after Ulundi ?

How many warriors still had the Zulu nation for this ...?

Personally, I find that the occupation of Ulundi was no excuse not to continue the resistance in other forms , such attacks by small impis on smaller british detachments or seeking allies, diversionary raids in Natal ect...

Yes it's weird, the Zulus at the time were not very tough and for their tactics they have not been able to adapt as the Xhosa and Matabele ... Ah if Mr Lambert , my ancestor was still living at that time ...

Monsieur Lambert would no doubt have organised and lead the resistance Pascal!

I would reckon those warriors who survived Ulundi and the previous battles would in the absence of any orders to the contrary, have been pleased to slope off home.

They were broken at Kambula... From there it was all down hill.

In fact the Zulus do not have the same kind of courage that Xhosa ...
(see Hary Smith's last throw ,the eighth frontier war 1850 - 1853 )

The zulu warrios are real robots in 1879 , alas ... Except that during the wars of 1883 - 1888, they increase their quantity of firearms, they created one small cavalry and they hired Boer mercenaries... ( see The Atlas of later Zulu Wars 1883-1888 )


Pascal the Rascal, a descendant of Mr Lambert, another Rascal, and induna in chief of the Royal Zulu Army Very Happy
