“Fix bayonets and die like British soldiers do!” ORDER TO BRITISH TROOPS. An authoritative account of the Zulu War of 1879. The Redcoat campaign in Zululand in 1879 holds a special place in the pantheon of military history. Its two most famous battles - the dreadful slaughter at Isandlwana and the heroic defence of Rorke’s Drift still hold an enduring fascination. These epic encounters are laced with tales of courage and valour on both sides. The incredible determination of the Zulu warriors and the sheer professionalism and bravery of the British soldiers ensures that the Zulu Wars maintain their place in the popular imagination. Featuring footage from the movie “Zulu Dawn” this video is a spectacular true record of the war against the Zulus. Exciting specially filmed reconstructions and re-enactments, plus dramatised eye-witness accounts combine with the very latest 3D mapping techniques and superb period imagery to tell the epic story of the momentous chapter in military history. Narrated by Robert Powell. Featuring expert comment and analysis by Dr David Chandler, the world’s foremost military historian and former head of War Studies at Sandhurst.
