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
