Looking at the map you see that one
regiment of Wazulu managed to brake
through the English lines. They were
shot to pieces in short order.That
was the high water mark of the Wazulu
attack. The Red Xs are destroyed enemy The combined Nabyssinian and
Wazulu forces took about 45% casualties and broke off and moved
off to the north east to rejoin the
main armies.

Main problem the Nabyssinians
had was not enough infantry to
take broken ground in support
of the Wazulu. The Brits had
the high ground in a fortified
position also.

Pretty much, thing was with
the large amount of cav the
Nabyssinians had they really
needed open ground. The Brits
even dismounted their cav and
put them in a firring line.
