There are very few facts about the Zulu War, to that of speculation! the Historians just filled in the facts in away that is logical to them!

Martin I don't think that you have read any of Col Snooks books, but made the cardinal mistake of listening to others views?

John.

I do have Mikes book, the problem is, that when reading it you realise that it is mostly Mikes own opinion and a lot of guesswork. There is very little prime source evidence, and a lot of what Mike states is unreferenced or unsupported, which leaves the reader wondering if it is fact, fiction or myth, and his opinions about Col Durnford leave a lot to be desired.

You have to listen to other peoples viewpoints in order to arrive at an opinion of your own, if you only read ex Lt Col Mike Snook's work then you only have one viewpoint, that is why I have various books and other works on the subject from both sides of the camp (as it were), it helps you to arrive at an opinion of your own rather than jumping the gun by believing the first thing you read.
