Hi all


As everyone knows, LC banned the fortifications of all kinds for his troops at Isandhlwana ...

But Wood has fortified his camp in anticipation of a possible attack ...

What day, Wood has it been notified of the massacre of Isandhlwana and it's LC which is really neat or authorized Wood to fortify his camp? ...


Cheers

In fact, because of the Battle of Centane, the British overestimated the power of the MH, which is why, LC thought laagers were obsolete ...As for regulation, with it, it is not even a question of infantry square ...
