Was it a big mistake to invade Zulu Land during the rainy season. What was the idea behind it and what were the consequences of doing so. We're they hoping it would interfere with the Zulus harvesting. 

Had the British not been advised against invading in January by Durnford.

Ray this I'm sure is covered on here somewhere , I think I may've posted some of it  scratch  , but in a nutshell
interfering with the zulu harvest was one of the reasons , zululand had been in the grip of a severe 10 year drought , so the zulu crops or harvest were vitally important to them , also there would be a shortage of fodder for the trek animals
and Livestock etc if they invaded in the drier months . Try the search box other details may also pop up !  agree
