Zulu Broken: The battles of Ntombe Drift, Hlobane and Kambula

August 30, 2019

In today’s episode of the Redcoat History Podcast (no, it's not a history of Butlin's) we follow further exploits from the Anglo-Zulu war of 1879 - the invasion’s northern column, under Colonel Evelyn Wood.

We are going to be surprised in our beds by a Zulu raid and have to battle them naked. We are going to be outfought and nearly wiped out attacking one of their strongholds and we are then going to face the might of a huge zulu impi as it comes charging towards our laager at Kambula - could this finally be the end of the British invasion?
