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

A very rare and important publication - this is the handbook issued to British Staff officers on the eve of their invasion of Natal and the ensuing Zulu War in 1879. It gives a detailed picture of Zulu society, individual chieftains, military tactics, warriors' dress and history ‘compiled from information obtained from the most reliable sources'. It includes a diagram of the famous Zulu attack formation, based on the horns of cattle, in which the enemy was enveloped on both wings by two horns, while the body of the ‘bull' was held in reserve. The detailed intelligence that the British had built up on their potential enemy listed in this eye-opening little book is quite staggering. However, in the campaign that followed, much of that intelligence was not utilised thanks to the incompetent conduct of the campaign.

Never heard of this book before. So is it about what should have been put in place by the officers but wasn't.

Hi 24th .
Yes , it is the booklet that was given to the column commanders , but as you said it wasnt acted upon as it should have been .
It also tells the commanders how to set up their positions in case of an attack , and the good old British square isnt mentioned at all . I'm sure this was discussed previously in several threads , as it is also in Journal Of The Anglo Zulu War Historical Society Journal No 5 . I've posted this journal many times before on the forum for those who may be interested , it's often for sale on ebay and not expensive either . Salute
cheers 90th. You need to study mo

Garry

For the pamphlet "The Zulu Army and Zulu Headmen" and ,the other pamphlet "Precis of information concerning the Zulu Country,with a map.Prepared in the intelligence Branch of the Quarter -Master-General's Department,Horse Guards,War Office.

Poor plans,I possed the two and with one or two pages ready they are identical and there is a maximum of laughs in it, such as loss of some regiments Zulus at Isandhlwana

Cheers
