Historical Zulu War art print of the Battle of Ulundi during the Zulu War. Military art print Battle of Ulundi by Fayel published by Cranston Fine Arts. Battle of Ulundi 4th July 1879.

Battle of Ulundi, 1879  Cetewayo, installed in power by the British, immediately became fired with the ambition of conquest. The Zulus, over whom he ruled, are a martial race, and he had no difficulty in making them a nation of soldiers. Their raids into Natal rendered it necessary to organise a punitive expedition, and three British columns marched into Zululand by different routes. At Isandhlwana, on January 22nd, the British camp was surprised and attacked by 15,000 warriors, and we suffered heavily. The heroic defence of Rorke's Drift was on the same day, and on the 24th, Sir Evelyn Wood won a victory at Inkanyana. In March a convoy was cut to pieces near Intombi River and Prince Napoleon was killed, but in July the battle of Ulundi broke the power of the Zulu nation and sent Cetewayo a captive to London. Ulundi was the King's kraal and lay in an amphitheatre of hills flanked by two great military kraals. Upon this position the British advanced in hollow square. Halting within a mile of the kraal this imposing force offered battle. Before them were ranged 30,000 dauntless savages armed with assegais, rifles and oval shields of stout or ox hide. Lord Chelmsford's object was to draw them on to  the square and a score of mounted irregulars were accordingly sent forward. The lure was a success. Enraged at the taunts of this handful of men, the Zulus began to advance. The enemy extended their formation so that they might envelop and crush the square. Like the waves of a troubled sea, they rolled across the plain, chanting their war song until the air reverberated with the wild weird music which none having heard before can ever forget. A tempest of lead and iron received them, and the shriek of shell mingled with their death cry. If for a moment they wavered or fall back it was only to come on once more with fierce and dauntless stride. But courage was vain against that quadruple line of steel, to approach which was certain death. One chief, more daring or skilled than the rest, dashed his warriors upon the right rear angle of the square and threatened a hand to hand fight - bayonet against assegai. But the guns were soon at work and rolled them back under a storm of shrapnel. At last the savage hordes began to waver. "Go at them Lowe," was the order, and Drury-Lowe led his lancers out of the square at a gallop. An ambush checked their charge and emptied many a saddle. Another moment and lance and sabre pierced and rent the black mass. Yet the fight went on until the King's Dragoons and a flying column advanced and drove the stubborn remnant of the enemy into the hills and gave Ulundi to the flames. From this blow the Zulus, once the masters of South Africa, have never recovered.  Text by William Maxwell 1902.

Ulundi 4th July 1879 - Charge of the 17th Lancers by Jason Askew.


Ulundi 4th July 1879 - Charge of the 17th Lancers by Jason Askew.

The British force of 17,000 British and native troops, under the command of Lieutenant General Lord Chelmsford engaged over 22,000 Zulu warriors on 4th July 1879 at Ulundi. During the battle several thousand Zulus surrounded the British infantry which formed a square with the 17th Lancers at its centre. When the Zulus attack faltered the 17th Lancers passed out of the back of the square and were ordered to charge. The impact of the charge broke up what was left of the Zulu formations and the Zulu army dissolved in flight. The British casualties at the Battle of Ulundi were 3 officers and 79 men. but it is believed the Zulu losses were around 1500.
