The Zulu war. Scene of the Battle of Isandula (Isandhlwana) Featured Historic Image

The Zulu war. Scene of the Battle of Isandula (Isandhlwana)

After the Battle of Isadhlwana. A description by Lieutenant Crealock reads, Day waned and the night hung over the hill, when we reached the last ridge, beyond which lay what had been our camp. To the hill on the left we sent off Major Black and three companies of the 24th to seize it. The neck between it and the hill we must gain at all hazards. In silence we marched down into the gloom below, where lay, shrouded by a merciful pall, the horrors of the past day'. 1, 700 British soldiers had perished in the bloodiest battle of the Zulu war, on 22nd January 1879
