Event description

Description

This talk is given by Douglas Rattray, son of the late David Rattray. In this talk, Douglas explains the battle of Isandlwana from both sides: English and Zulu. It highlights the courage of desperate soldiers, and the gallantary of the proud warriors. Our Eurocentric understanding of this titanic clash has, for years, been that of a British blunder. It is high time that we consider this struggle for what it really was: a great Zulu vistory.

In support of the Khula Foundation: "Without education, there is no hope; without hope, there is no future." - David Rattray
