This chapter describes the amaZulu's victory at Isandlwana. On January 21, Lord Chelmsford sent out his men to scout the area southeast of Isandlwana, but they were confronted by several thousand of Matshana's men on the hills to their front. With about half the force still at Isandlwana camp, Chelmsford left the camp and fought with Zulu forces that were pulling away north-east towards Siphezi. When Chelmsford returned to Isandlwana camp, the amaZulu had successfully killed about 1,000 British, white, and black troops guarding the British camp.

Keywords:   amaZulu, Chelmsford, Isandlwana, Matshana, Siphezi
