The zulu wars were fought by the zulu tribe of south africa and english and boar settelers. The zulu tribe was attacking english soldiers because they setteled in the zulu empire the english fought the zulu and won and now there no more zulus around
Well... It is a classic war. I think they can be compared best with the native american conflicts about 150 years ago. That's how europeans thought in those days. Nessecary? maybe not, English people belong in England. But they were on a roll in those days, trying to conquer the world, looking for resources. Surely in these days nobody would approve of such an action. But then again, those were different times.
I won't say these wars were fair; the English used guns of some kind, but then again, the Zulus won one battle, at bloodriver if I am not mistaken.
What I don't like about that war is that the 1950 government of South Africa used this war to spark the apartheid regime. In these days they built a memorial in Pretoria to commemorate the victory over the Zulus.
Oh and by the way... Althoug many zulus were slaughtered, they still exist. They live primeraly in the province of Kwazulu-Natal, their earlier homeland.
Boar settlers ?
Pig Men ? Are you telling me England were allied with a race of Pig Men ? ?
Fuck , imagine being like a little Zulu chap about to fight your first battle .
You have your spear and cardboard cow shield , running around fucking Africa with no shoes on and NOT ONLY do you have to fight white men , who you have never seen before and who use weapons that fire small bits of hard stuff that explode the heads of all your mates BUT you also had to fight a pack of fucking Pig Warriors too ?!!?.
Fuck me ... What chance did they have ?
Look ,I know the Zulus at Roarkes Drift fucked up tons of English , but , in light of these new facts I'm guessing the Boar Man Army wasn't there that day .
