3rd September 2003What if the entire No. 3 column had been wiped out?
By Steven Sass
Had the Zulus been able to annihilate the entire No. 3 column including Chelmsford's force at Mangeni, what course would the war have taken? If this topic has already been discussed I do apologize.

It would have been a big blow if this had happen.
Just think Chelmsford and some of his staff would have had no reason to tell all the cover up stories that are told and discussed today.
But no doubt England would have sent reinforcements.
