Thank you for an excellent and well documented website. This afternoon, BBC showed "Zulu" and I watched it, probably the 20th time. A wonderful film and although, as your informative site points out, it may contain certain inaccuracies, remains a classic of the "genre".

Having spent the Christmas season frustratedly channel hopping TV in order to avoid the rubbish we get served up in the UK at the moment, I have had the pleasure of being able to watch 'Zulu" twice in the last few days. Deciding to browse Google for mor infomation I came across your excellent site. Many thanks

Like so many I was greatly moved by the heroism of both sides. I was lucky enough to visit Rorke's Drift in 1990,and feel an affinity for Africa,having lived in Zimbabwe for some years,but it's Natal that holds a special place in my heart. Hamba kahle

I just wanted to congratulate you on a web site very well done, having always had an interest in the subject, it's great to see a lot of the information in the one place. Andrew Barrett's summary is a good one, Brave men from both sides are to be widely admired, but war ultimately has very few winners.

I would like to say that there were no winners on 22nd january 1879 as the British should have not crossed the Buffalo river and the Zulu,s after their victory at Isandhlwana didn,t need to attack the Hospital at Rorkes drift after the initial victory but one day next year,I will go to Natal and shake the hand of a "real life"Zulu in person.I send my warmest reagrds to the Zulu nation form Andy in kings lynn norfolk England!!

Sometimes folks forget what true sacrifice means, But I guess we that have shared it or been part of it, know it best. This film like others like it will always inspire us that watch them. I have had some of my boys watch them with me, so they know why there father likes them so much, And on many occasions I would tell them “Come and see what a little courage can achieve when all else fails”. How many of us have felt that emptiness of despair in life or in conflict, but always deep down we find the hope, courage and resilience to overcome the what others perceive as the end. It’s possible the same went through minds of those brave souls at Rorkes Drift and many other known and unknown places ware folks fought and died. May the Lord keep there souls…….

Having English born parents, and my father serving in WW1, with the 991st Infantry Bn., I am always awed and inspired by a British war movie. This film, along with Gunga Din and the original version of 4 Feathers, remains my greatest movie adventures. As the Color Sergeant might have said "We fight for God, King and country."

I have viewed this movie countless times over these many years, the actual event inspires me now as it did in 1964 prior to my service in the USMC.

I attended the Anglo-Zulu war centenary in 1979 ..and have visited Rorke; Drift twice. Very powerful testimony of two groups of brave soldiers one British one Zulu.
