A Return to the “Valley of Death”

This past Sunday we assembled yet another attempt to get a British force through the Valley of Death to destroy the main Zulu kraal (homestead) in the area. At least three attempts had been made in the past, all ending in British disasters. This time the British commander used the slow and cautious approach of forming a large square and moving it through the valley. This technique worked pretty well except for the fact that it turned out to be impossible for such a large close-order formation to cross the donga (dry river bed) that crosses the valley before running out of time. We’ll let the pictures tell the story.

The square is formed and prepared to move out.
