Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Was there any particular colonial force during the Zulu War the Zulu’s feared most? To a point where they would rather run than fight.
And its there any documention with a Zulu view to this force . if there was one.

hi littlehand.
I have never read anywhere of a colonial force putting the wind up the zulu"s , Its more to the
point I think , The zulu"s werent scared of anyone , I seem to remember reading that the zulu"s
werent keen on facing mounted troops , dont know where I read it !. If I remember rightly It may
have come from " LUCKY ESSEX " one of the 5 officers that survived Isandlwana.
hope this helps .
cheers 90th.
