This man died 4 years before the Anglo Zulu War but he had quite an influence on the outcome of at least one battle. He died 24th October 1875. Any guesses?

Frank,

Could it be argued that he was the cause of the battle?

If you 'claim' he had something to do with the outcome, I will 'claim' he caused it...... Joker
