While a portion of Zululand was occupied by the British !!!
What happened??? What were the intentions of the Zulu King ???

The Zulu king really didn't want to fight. They also knew that reinforcements were coming. John Dunn I believed advised the king to push the English into the sea. Perhaps the king was somewhat wiser than Dunn. It was a war the Zulu's could not win!,

Anyway, it is better to die standing than live on your knees, alongside white men !!!
