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

thank you LH, I possed and read both but there are some differences in, there is one who gives losses suffered by the Zulu army (not possible because incredible loss ) but I was wondering if LC was not behind it ...
How 's about the Zulus, the authors of the book, published before the war ...

Subject: At what exact time , these two books have been written and by whom ? Fri Nov 23, 2012 10:36 pm
Pascal . Zulu Army And Zulu Headman was published in 1878 I think ! . My copy is the second edition - Revized but has no date , there are written notes regarding some of the zulu chiefs stating '' Present at delivery of ultimatum 11/ 11 / 78 '' other dates stated '' Present at the delivery of the ultimatum 11 / 11 / 79 '' . As far as I'm aware the ultimatum was delivered on the 11 / 12 / 78 !!. As for the other pamphlet , there is no date but mine does say '' Corrected to January 1879 '' also its writter is listed as Anonymous . The zulu army and zulu headman I think was compiled by Fynn or Finney ?? , not to sure . 90th.
