Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Yes LC does seem to change his strategy ( Daily ? ) , he certainly wanted them to offer themselves for sacrifice , well... he got what he wanted in Spades , not actually him , but the other half of his camp . After seeing the land around Isandlwana , if the zulu wanted to bypass the Column and invade Natal , they could've done so with relative ease , you could hold 50,000 people in the Buffalo River valley , no problem whatsoever , well nowadays anyway , not sure how much bush etc was in those valleys in 1879 , I doubt though it's changed that much , although the immediate vicinity of Isandlwana has most certainly changed . LC was in a hurry to get at the Zulu , no doubt about that .

Talking of a change of tactics here’s how Judy imagined how Wolseley would change things.
