The Anglo-Zulu War, 11 January – 4 July 1879

image 6

The Anglo-Zulu War was fought in 1879 between the British Empire and the Zulu Kingdom. Following Lord Carnarvon's successful introduction of federation in Canada, it was thought that similar political effort, coupled with military campaigns, might succeed with the African kingdoms, tribal areas and Boer republics in South Africa. In 1874, Sir Henry Bartle Frere was sent to South Africa as High Commissioner for the British Empire to bring such plans into being. Among the obstacles were the presence of the independent states of the South African Republic and the Kingdom of Zululand and its army.

Frere, on his own initiative, without the approval of the British government and with the intent of instigating a war with the Zulu, had presented an ultimatum on 11 December 1878, to the Zulu king Cetshwayo with which the Zulu king could not comply. Bartle Frere then sent Lord Chelmsford to invade Zululand after this ultimatum was not met. The war is notable for several particularly bloody battles, including a stunning opening victory by the Zulu at the Battle of Isandlwana, as well as for being a landmark in the timeline of imperialism in the region. The war eventually resulted in a British victory and the end of the Zulu nation's independence.

Napoleon Bonaparte was the best general in history, sure he was a dictator and a short person but he was a military genuis. Ignore his BS personality and focus on his military genuis like this game and its amazing.

One word WELLINGTON. He never lost a battle he personally commanded, there were at least 50, and the only battle they ever fought, WELLINGTON, not Napoleon, won. I'm not saying that it wasn't partly due to the Prussians or that napoleon is a bad general by any means, I just think you go much too far to say Napoleon is "the best general in history".

the Allies were winning in the first world war then the US came to do the mopping up

and Britain held out in the second world war, (remember we won the battle of britain securing our position, and all our naval success agaisnt the German fleet all before the US joined) and along with the USSR we would have won eventually maybe 10 years without the US resulting in the USSR controlling most of Europe

that is a highly controversial post - considering the yanks entered both theatres of war late. When war is on your doorstep it is a hard fought game of attrition - when you are thousands of miles away and lazy inbred tubs of lard its's easy to sit back and wait to pick the winning side or enter when you have been pressured into it. America is a disease. A silly nation of 'free people' with ideas of 'every man has right to carry a gun' turning that nation into a hive of paranoia and extremist political views.

yep yeah napoleon is so overrated, i mean comon, after he died france went bankrupt, lost all of their colonies in america and in india and the pax brittanica started, whole centuries with the british rulling the world, besides he was nothing more than a dictator.

this game should've been actually like the Kingdoms expansion, and you could play as Frederick the Great, Napoleon, Russia/sweden in the northern war, and etc, much better than just focusing on this dwarf
