Battle of the Nyezane  Empty
PostSubject: Battle of the Nyezane    Battle of the Nyezane  EmptyFri Nov 15, 2013 10:18 pm

the following from Knight & Greaves in a biography of  Godide kaNdela who was commander of the zulu impi at Nyezane
'' Godide underestimated the speed of Pearson's advance . On the 21st he pushed forward to the kwagingindlovhu royal homestead reaching it after dark only to find that Pearson had already passed by and set it on fire . The british remained camped nearby , and Godide seized the opportunity to surround them in the darkness . For both practical and spiritual reasons , however , the zulu were reluctant to launch an attack in the dark , and the frequent shouts by Pearson's sentries convinced Godide that the british were prepared . Instead , he he called off his men and retired north , across the nyezane river . The british were astonished to wake up the following morning to find large swathes of grass trampled flat around the camp . Godide's revised plan was to attack Pearson ( 22nd ) as he struggled to get his wagons across the narrow , high banks of the Nyezane '' .  This from  ' Who's Who In The Zulu War ' by Knight & Greaves page 145.
As you are well aware the zulu army was a taker of opportunity , Godide was given sanction to do what he thought fit , the attack on the 22nd although not ideal with their spiritual thinking , was yet again , an opportunity to good to deny , heavy wagons attempting to cross a swollen river , they also had good cover from the hills they were stationed behind , its a little like Isandlwana in the fact that a Scouting party under Fitzroy- heart and the NNC found them before the attack was set into being .

I'm not convinced! Still think is was part of the bigger picture. With regards to the Zulu intentions of pushing the British back to natal! All on the 22nd Jan. Wasn't Godide relating to the Zulu commander at Isandlwana.

Agree! The new moon theory is a fable?
