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

I think David summed it up very well. (No argument from me) Anyone disagree.

"Credit where credit is due, said Rattray: "For too long we've been painting this battle as a British blunder. It was a great British disaster certainly, but more than that, it was a Zulu victory. And all credit to the great Zulu commander for that. It was his day. His warriors performed beautifully. His command was absolute. It was a fantastic military feat that was achieved by the Zulus. The British general was "out-generalled" by the Zulu general and that is the fact of this matter".

This should be written in every Zulu War Histroy book. On the first page. Idea
