Film Zulu Dawn quote: “Excuse me, my Lord, there's something I must convey to you. I rode along the track down to Rorke's Drift. The sky above is red with fire. Your orders my Lord? Do we move to the drift?”

Just a general enquiry.

Why is it written in the Histroy books that Chelmsford re-took the camp at Isandlwana.

Because in real terms, there was no resistance what so ever, nearly all the Zulu had left and those that I'd remain were of no consequence.
The British entered the camp, were made to spend the night among the dead and left for RD early the next morning. There was no re-take of the camp as in fighting to re-take.

Much spin written at the time and still so today over 130 years later, in order to try to deaden what was an incredibly embarrassing, humiliating and disastrous blow.
