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

Hi all

Had Cetshwayo ordered his army into Natal,the consequences for the black and whites population would have been horrendous and the subsequentof the area would have been equally difficult to imagine .

What consequences Question Natal people would flee the Zulus, Natal cities have recovered all white and the Zulus would have starved because their system does not permit it to supply their army to stay long in campaign outside of Zululand...

Cheers

Pascal

The Natal invasion by the Zulus would have starved because their system does not permit it to supply their army to stay long in campaign outside of Zululand...

Someone is of a different opinion ?

Perhaps they wouldn't have wanted to stay in Natal. But they still could have caused some damage.

Perhaps They would not Have wanted to stay in Natal. They still aim Could have Caused some damage.

Yes it is a solution, In addition, if the Zulus had entered in Natal before January 1879, the first battles of the war taking place in Natal, the Zulus were defeated faster and they would not have their current status of victims ...

Entering Natal, after Isandhlwana, they would not have done much harm, the evidence, they were not even take Rorke's Drift...

There is nothing in Natal that the Zulu want. They only wanted to live in peace in their own land. They wasn't allowed too.

Then any threats on the Natal by the Zulus were false ?

After the reign of Dingane, the zulus were pretty cool ...

It is rather the natives everywhere on earth were afraid of white ...
