13th December 2003Would it have made a differance?
By Trevor
If Chelmsford hadn't split his forces! Could they have held out at Islandwana?
Would the Zulu have taken them on at ISL anyway?
The Zulu had to fight somewhere. Would it still have been at ISL with those extra troops there?
From the little I know. It seems the Zulu would still have had surprise on their side. I just wondered if the extra fire power would have saved the Brits on that day?
Forgive all the IFS. I'm just intersted in the tactics of that day!
