What is actually the number of dead Zulu, counted by the British after each british victory ?

And we will report on the ridiculous firepower even in regard to the imperial troops, implemented in this war ...
At R D, it will took at least 25 cartridges for a hit and in other battles, it should be much more ...

In fact the Zulu losses are certainly much weaker than was saying...

Rascal . I dont think any two books agree on the casualty figures regarding the zulu dead after each battle , I dont think there is an exact number for each battle , they all seem to vary ? . Happy to be corrected ! 90th.
