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

Pascal What story are you referring to. The Zulu War, Isandlwana or other.

Throughout the history and the military history in particular !
The history is told by the victors and even the survivors...

Hi Monsieur Gary Wilson
Yes it is the winners who write history ...
But now it is also the survivors, as there are a lot of the litigation in France, with the revisionist and negationist ...
There are even now laws to prevent some historians to go against " the single thought " !!!...

Pascal - we all know this. And this is why it is important to question and think through the official version of events; not merely to read and believe everything that you read and are told. I did, but over the decades, I have found out the hard way and by real life experience that everything you read and are told is not always true.
