    Shaka Zulu won both this erb and his importance in history. He actually was the head of an army after all, but Caesar was just some aristocratic elite.

          The reason I think Caesar won is this...

          Shaka's battle strategy was very simple by very effective. He would hide a huge reserve of his best men behind hills (His Loins). While those mean rested and waited he would form his main force like the wide chest and horns of a bull.

          With a strong shield line of light spear men in the middle(The Chest) and once the enemy engage he would have two flanking attack advance(The Horns)... this rarely won the fight but it often through fear of being out flanked caused his enemies pull back or bring in their reinforcements early.

          He would then have his force skirmish for HOURS under the African sun. He didn't look to win with this main force instead seeking to exhaust his enemies to the point they were to tired to run, and had to be committed to the fight.

          Then, when the day was long and both sides near breaking... over a nearby hill would come the loins... Shaka's best fighters, fresh and rested from relaxing in shade and drinking water, would crash down the middle. (The loins being Shaka's finishing force btw is why Shaka says Caesar would get fucked)

          The enemies would often break at just the sight, but remember... they would have been fighting all day... too tired to run at that point the battle would turn into a slaughter.

          Shaka spends most of his second verse setting up that Caesar wouldn't be able to beat him on the battle field due to this tactic and ends by calling him a coward.

          Caesar's comeback is to explain how the strategy that Shaka used to win all of his battles would be picked apart piece by piece.

          Caesar wouldn't allow himself to be flanked, as he is one of the few men in history that can claim he once out flanked encircled and beat an army that was larger. His men had better shields and would not be drawn out by the chest(Slap you in the chest). And long range reinforcements charges on Roman forces were a bad bad idea because unlike Shaka's forces, Caesar would have had much better long range options and weapons.

                    Caesar was a better leader and was probably better in the rap too

                                    Almost perfect. Romans weren't 'pasty white' though--they and all natural Italians are Mediterranean--which while a sub-race of Caucasian, are known for their olive skin.

                                        This battle annoys me the most. Firstly your portrayal of the great Shaka is fucking horrible. Do your fucking research, Caeser and Shaka died the same way. "Stabbed many times by your friends"

                                          I say Zulu won just because of his better burns

                                          But in real life Zulu (from what I’ve learned from the comments) is that he got stabbed by his brothers

                                              Just played Sid Meier's Civilization 1 game as Caesar on Emperor difficulty. Most of the game turned into 1vs1 with Shaka's Zulus. Beat them in the end after a good fight.

                                                            To compare Zulu a n d Rome is pretty unfair. A better comparison would be Zulu and Vikings, since they were both more savage. Except Zulu would probs win.

He pretty much re invented the art of war in africa. Then was able to drive out the first european incursion on its territory.
