From the final charge at Ulundi:
During the chase one of the Basutos shot a Zulu in the leg, and then interviewed the wounded man with all the thirst for news which distinguishes a New York reporter. It was a singular time and a dangerous spot, in which to interview a man, especially a wounded man, but the questioner went to work seriously and got all the news of the week. Then he gently asked the Zulu if he had nothing more to tell, and on being assured that there was no more information to be had, he quietly shot the man, mounted his horse and joined in the chase.
Wars a bitch
