Hello to all

Incredible, despite the so-called iron discipline of the Zulu warriors, it happened many times that the Zulu king and his generals have no authoritative on the simple warriors and their officers, as at Isandhlwana, Kambula and Ulundi. ..

This caused disasters and precipitated the destruction of Zululand.

The king knew exactly what his Impi's were doing. You woundn't send 30,000 warriors to talk peace, as was his words regarding Isandlwana. Plus the fact they were going to attack on the 23rd anyway.

Iron discipline of Zulu warriors? Where are you getting this nonsense? It sounds like you are applying European ideas of what a soldier should be to a different culture. The Zulu were never "Spartans." Their army was more like a "national guard" (i.e. militia) than a professional force. You need to study mo

[quote="Pascal MAHE"It is you who should read and study, I have said, the so-called iron discipline of Zulu warriors ...[/quote]

I have read the history of the Zulu people and there was nothing unusual about the way they fought those battles with the exception that more and more rifles were being integrated into their army. There NEVER WAS any iron discipline. The Zulu army was a quasi-volunteer force. Its major focus most of the time was public works projects...and Cetshwayo's political standing was less than absolutely steadfast. They had no Prussian Staff concept. This topic is a nonstarter...like most your provocations. Nice try though...

Some people read up and down. I usually read from LEFT to RIGHT. But right to left? Is this another one of your bloody provocations?!

All cases of indiscipline of the Zulu officers and warriors, as I mentioned earlier in this topic, they would have taken place during the reign of Shaka?
