20097 - Zulu Warrior Casualty No.1

W. Britains

Zulu Warrior Casualty, No.1 

The principle Zulu fighting style was to engage the enemy at close-quarters with their spears. A massive frontal attack combined with a wide enveloping push that surrounded the enemy was simple, devastating, and effective, regardless of losses. This tactic worked exceptionally well when your 20,000 man force faced a force of 1,800, even if the opposition was equipped with modern fighting weapons. At the Battle Isandlwana the Zulu sustained approximately 1,000 to 3,000 killed from such advanced weaponry. By the time the Zulus broke off their engagement at Rorke’s Drift, at least 350 of them lay dead on the field. Some estimates put the count at around 500. Whatever the actual figure, there was no quarter given to any wounded Zulu.
