Kieran, I can say without any doubt that I haven't got a clue what the above post is meant to say. It may just be me, but please could you write it a little clearer so it can be understood?

An oversight? As I understand it, the Zulus who attacked Rorke's Drift did so because they had not taken part at Isandlwana. They crossed the river to gain loot and glory.
If Chelmsford had kept his force together the Zulus may not have attacked, but if they had they would have had a harder time of it.
