The Zulu War: Isandhlwana and Rork’s Drift.


The stories of the British disaster at Isandhlwana and the heroic defence of Rorke’s Drift in 1879 are an imperishable part of our military history.Eight hundred British redcoats and another nine hundred of their native allies died as the Zulu warriors led by Dabulamanzi swept into the camp at Isandhlwana from which the Commander in Chief,Lord Chelmsford,had been decoyed with half his force.The same night the Zulus attacked the British post at Rorke’s Drift,the hospital and storehouse,defended by just a hundred men.
