Example text

Combat consisted of a short tussle as each man struggled to catch his opponent off guard. The Zulu shields were used to batter the enemy, to try to force his own shield across his body, thereby exposing the chest or stomach to an under-arm thrust. A good thrust to the abdomen would cause a horrific injury, putting a man hors de combat, and as he fell he was likely to receive further wounds. Fighting was physically exhausting and very bloody, but often quickly resolved, since it was impossible for both sides to stand indefinitely.

Indeed, the British were astonished in 1879 to see the speed and efficiency of the Zulu attack, noting the way that long columns deployed into open ranks, with knots of evenly spaced warriors running forward from cover to cover. As the 'chest and horns' closed in, the formations inevitably became tighter, but it was only when the warriors were within 200—300 yds that they broke into a last run, and presented a solid body. If the army was fighting en masse, it was usual for the younger, unmarried amabutho to make up the encircling horns, trading their speed for the experience of the more senior men, who composed the chest.

The Zulu faced this ordeal with remarkable courage, no doubt buoyed up by faith in their preparatory medicines, but inevitably, once they had passed through it, their frustration was unleashed in the final assault. Zulu accounts of the fighting at Isandlwana have an almost hallucinogenic quality, a nightmare succession of images, of twisting, struggling masses of men, of smoke, dust and noise. ' - and individuals shouted it each time they struck at the enemy. ' So surreal did this fighting seem that at Isandlwana, young men who had never seen a white man before, and had been told to kill everyone in clothes, stabbed at sacks piled up on supply wagons, while at Khambula the army - who failed to overcome the British defences retired convinced that they had seen dogs and apes manning the ramparts.
