One of the most evocative conflicts of the Victorian era, the Anglo-Zulu War, has been immortalized by the classic 1964 war movie Zulu as the heroic last stand of gallant British soldiers against overwhelming enemy numbers under the hot sun of southern Africa. The Battle of Rorke’s Drift is just one chapter in this thrilling story and this bookazine explains the background to the conflict. Starting with the British government’s ambitions to create a federated South Africa in the face of the fiercely independent Zulu Kingdom and Boer Republic, the book follows the escalating conflict from the British defeat at the Battle of Isandlwana to the unlikely defense of Rorke’s Drift in blow-by-blow accounts. This 116-page special bookazine details Zulu battle tactics, the weapons of the war, and how Britain’s bold Victoria Cross heroes earned their acclaim.
