Extract from:

CETSHWAYO'S DUTCHMAN BEING THE PRIVATE JOURNAL OF A WHITE TRADER IN ZÜLÜLAND DURING THE BRITISH INVASION

BY CORNELIUS VIJN

"The Zulus told me that, after the Battle of Isandhlwana, John Dunn sent a message to the King that 'he must send his army to the coast, and, if he beat the Whitemen there, he would be all right, for the Whitemen would then be finished off, since the Army on the coast was all they had left."

Do you think, if this was true? That Dunn was getting a little nervous after Isandlwana. Thought it best to stay on Cetewayo good side. Lets face it he had a lot to lose.

Not quite true! What about Wood's Column that did eventually turn the tide of the war? After all Dunn had already run away into Natal, hadn't he?
