Bluntly, How did they do It? (If at all). I read a reference to a Zulu general (Shaka?) being forced to fight a defensive action. It struck me that in any of the popular media that I'd seen or read the description of Zulus as fighters is always as attackers (Horns of the bUll and all that). In fact the only defensive action I could think of was the Stand of the Greys in King Solomons Mines and they are a) fictional and b) based on the Matabele ISTR! Anyone with any knowledge better than having watched Zulu repeatedly care to comment?
