PostSubject: Missing a tremendous opportunity !   Thu Jul 11, 2013 10:16 am

Hi all

The 22 January 1879 ,the Zulus missed a tremendous opportunity to win the war on their own territory. The reconnaissance force under Chelmsford was more vulnerable to being defeated by an attack than the camp. It was strung out and somewhat scattered, it had marched with limited rations and ammunition it could not now replace...

Cheers

Pascal the Wink

Like what Zulu strategy, although higher than those of the British, was not perfect !
