The Battle of Isandlwana, 22nd January 1879. British defeat or Zulu victory?

Scarcely 10 days after the invasion of Zululand began, disaster struck at Isandlwana.

In less than 2 hours more than 1 300 British soldiers lay dead in what some view as the greatest military defeat the British suffered at the hand of a native army in their entire colonial history.
