The elements of miltary success
on 4 August 2008
This battle stands out as being the supreme example of courage coupled with tactics; success required both. This dvd gives a historical perspective of the film 'Zulu' and surrounding conflict.
Nearly all of the battles in this series are won by the side with a leader who appreciates the importance of the terrain and the tactics of using weapons. Having endured a millenium of fighting big battles against the odds, the British are shown to be far superior in this respect. However, this dvd also points out just how many Zulu warriors were still alive, had they decided to carry on fighting - a sobering thought.
Not the most important event in British warfare by a long way, but it must be a contender for the most inspiring victory.
