Speaking of Wolseley, if it was he who commanded all the British Imperiale troops in South Africa, Frere could not do all the evil he has done.
First, there would have been no invasion of Zululand.

Pascal, Wolseley arrived on the scene much later.

Yes, but Wolseley would never have the leader of an military invasion without the Prime Minister and the Queen are okay ...
Is this lack of imperial troops in the invasion did not take place under the predecessor of LC or is it because he would not accept an military invasion without the Prime Minister and the Queen are okay ...
