One ended in disaster. The other, thanks to hard lessons learned, in victory. Two experts tell the stories of both battles, a moment-to-moment breakdown of history in the making.

Battle Story Mafeking 1900

Battle Story Mafeking 1900 by Edmund YorkeThe Siege of Mafeking remains one of the most famous actions of the Second Boer War, with the British Army defeating a Boer force of over 8,000 men with only 1,500 troops. The town of Mafeking was designated a central location due to its rail connections and Robert Baden-Powell decided to trial his theory of defence rather than attack here. He hold up his troops in Mafeking, fortifying the city for a siege that would last for 217 days. 800 men held Mafeking, supported by a cadet corps of 12 to 15 year olds who later inspired the Scouting Movement. The town withheld attack from the Boers against...

Battle Story: Kabul 1842

Battle Story: Kabul 1842 by Edmund YorkeKabul is a name that has had much resonance in current affairs over the last few years, however its place in military history can be charted much further back to the first British incursions into Afghanistan during the 19th century. The First Anglo-Afghan War saw British India attempting to obtain power over Central Asia by gaining control of Afghanistan. The conflict was to last for over three years and is often thought to have been one of Britain's worst disasters in Asia prior to the capture of Singapore during the Second World War. The British had little understanding or appreciation of...

Battle Story: Rorke's Drift

Battle Story: Rorke's Drift by Edmund YorkeThe small garrison based at Rorke's Drift in South Africa is forever immortalised in British history as one of the Army's most glorious moments. The garrison was defended by 139 British soldiers with c.300 African colonial troops under their command when, on 22 January 1879, they were attacked by a Zulu force of nearly 4,000 warriors. Out numbered by nearly twenty to one, the British soldiers constructed a makeshift defence and fought throughout the night. Their tenacity and bravery ensured that the British retained the garrison and won the battle. Their acts in the face of this overwhelming...

Isandlwana 1879

Isandlwana 1879 by Edmund YorkeOn 22 January 1879 a 20,000-strong Zulu army attacked 1,700 British and colonial forces. The engagement saw primitive weapons of spears and shields clashing with the latest military technology. However, despite being poorly equipped, the numerically superior Zulu force crushed the British troops, killing 1,300 men, whilst only losing 1,000 of their own warriors. It was a humiliating defeat for the British Army, who had been poorly trained and who had underestimated their enemy. The defeat ensured that the British had a renewed respect for their opponents and changed their tactics, rather than...
