Thank you for posting.

I first saw this as a young kid and it has remained one of my all time favorites since.

The sequel - "Zulu Dawn" depicts the British Loss that preceded this battle.

That is how the Zulu got the rifles. ;)

Which they were not trained on and couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.

However the Zulus were the only Native African people to defeat the British in combat.

Chief Buthelezi who consulted on the film was a fine leader for the modern Zulus - and he despised the ANC commies. :-)
