As a guerrilla, his tactics proved extremely successful. De la Rey opposed the war until the last, but when he was once accused of cowardice during a Volksraad session by President Paul Kruger, he replied that if the time for war came, he would be fighting long after Paul Kruger had given up and fled for safety. This proved to be the case.

The Battle of Blood River - The Boer picked off the Zulu warriors lining the banks of the river that ran red with their blood - hence the name Blood River.  An estimated 3000 Zulu warriors were killed on the veld, in the donga and in the river. Not a single Boer was killed. The Zulus were no match against a strong Boer defensive position. In the ultimate of ironies, on that very day, the British had run up the Union Jack in Durban. The Voortrekkers' greatest enemy had arrived.
