PostSubject: Did any of the other officer’s make critical mistakes.   Did any of the other officer’s make critical mistakes. EmptySun Dec 13, 2009 11:30 pm

Most forums discuss some of the officers involved in the Zulu War. Mainly Durnford, Chelmsford, and Pulleine. Coghill and Melville.
Did any of the other officer’s make critical mistakes that were over looked or swept under the carpet? ie Wood and Buller. Did Hlobane really go to plan or had intelligence been disregarded

“On his way, at 10.30 am, Wood was riding along the southern flank of Hlobane and spotted five large columns of Zulus to the south-east. This was the main impi, which he was not expecting to arrive in the area for another day.”

I cannot understand what is meant by “He was not expecting to arrive in the area for another day.”


Were there no scouts or surveillance operations in place, they had not long received the information relating to the disaster at Isandlwana, which should have automatically set procedures into place. Looking at the whole scenario it was an unnecessary risk. And the objective was to (drive off the cattle)
