Zulu Dawn! Lt. Col. Pulleine : His Lordship is of the cetain opinion that it's far too difficult an approach to be chosen by the Zulu command. Col. Durnford : Yes, well... difficulty never deterred a Zulu commander.

Day of the Dead Moon Empty
PostSubject: Day of the Dead Moon   Day of the Dead Moon EmptyTue Oct 30, 2018 12:33 pm

After my recent visit to Isandlwana, I got thinking about the whole eclipse scenario and the whole idea of the "Day of the Dead Moon", a day that the Zulu's regard as sacred or one that an individual doesn't marry on or fight if it can be helped. We know that the intent was for the Zulu impi to attack the British camp at Isandlwana on the 23rd but unfortunately for them they got discovered and had to press home the advantage - my question is - what happened at the Battle of Nyezane? Was it the Zulu's intent to attack on the 22nd and trap the Britsh against the Nyezane River although it was the "Day of the Dead Moon" or were they discovered as well and forced into the offensive?? I look forward to any insight or opinion that the forum might have to offer.

Hi Richie Rich
The Zulu's were also discovered at Nyezane , which brought about the attack on Pearson's Column , although , the Zulu were basically laying in wait , the British would've been attacked no matter what on the 22nd as they , the British , would've eventually walked into them , whereas , early , it was the NNC / Colonials that came upon them first .
