Natal Witness iSandlwana account in a book review of History of the Zulu War by A Wilmot Empty
PostSubject: Natal Witness iSandlwana account in a book review of History of the Zulu War by A Wilmot   Natal Witness iSandlwana account in a book review of History of the Zulu War by A Wilmot EmptySat Jan 21, 2023 10:40 am

Though an extract from a book review the Natal Witness gives its views about iSandlwana and compares them to Wilmot's.

The article starts with
"We shall now correct some of the mistakes into which Mr Wilmot has fallen lest they should come to be regarded and quoted hereafter as historical facts"

An interesting point that stood out to me.
If it was the Zulu's intention to fight that morning and the army was already deployed ready to attack why did they wait till the camp was reinforced by Durnford before they began?
Surely it would have made sense to do it when Pulleine was at his weakest?

An interesting detail about the 13 scouts trying to return to RD under their "white leader" - I wonder, if true, who this was - J Raymond perhaps?
