please except my congratulations on excellent site
i have been interested in this battle since i was 14.have watched the 2 films countless times.
if any one is interested in the history of the zulu and british wars i recommend reading THE WASHING OF THE SPEARS by DESMOND R MORRIS.
is it also a myth that chard+bromhead argued
about who was the senior officer
thank you again for an excellent site

Excellent site. Fantastic depth of information on the battle and various participants. Well done. The film still ranks as my all-time favourite even allowing for those minor inaccuracies.

I have seen the film Zulu at least twenty times and decided to search the internet for information on the battle.
The site is a mine of information and after reading the details of the battle and the stories of the gallant soldiers; one cannot help but be proud of all the men who gave their lives serving Queen and country.

Oh Yes I forgot! - A Question: Did the Zulu's in fact make that 'dam train sound' when approaching Rorkes Drift in the original battle, or was that just put into the movie to add effect and chilling atmosphere?? can anyone oblige?? Always stays in my mind that one!!

Great site. I Always loved the film and have seen it many times. I collect Vintage film posters from Zulu from all around the world. The new Zulu DVD is due for release in the UK in August. Pity they can't put 'The Making Of' on it too. It's a 30min b/w documentary. Does anyone know of where one could get a vhs copy of this film? Keep up the good work.

Greetings my friends,
again and again i have come back to the site. There is always something new to see. As i was listening to Men of Harlech, I remembered a quote(if i remember it correctly) that i had read when helping a friend of my understand William Shakespeare,
"O'England little is thy Country; with a mighty heart!"
Another quote that comes to mind is Admiral Horatio Nelson
"England expects every man to do his duty!" The men of Rorkes Drift did just that.
I like to think a bit of England is in each of us; or at least that is what I believe.
Health, Wealth, and Happiness to you all.

I am 10 years old and I live in Zululand. I have visited the battlefields and forts with my dad since I was six and read Ian Knight's books. This is one of the best web sites I have seen, and my best movies are Zulu and Zulu Dawn. I have a big collection of Zulu cultural items. I would really like to get a british tunic and helmet and 24th Regiment badge.

I was lucky enough to visit Rork's Drift on an expedition to South Africa. Rork's Drift was where we were doing our community work. I wasn't interested in the history of the site and didn't even know what had happened there!! As a group we were given an organised tour of the battle field of Rork's Drift and Islandwana. I was fascinated in everything we were told! I am hoping to return to Rork's Drift to visit the children i made friends with as the people in Rork's Drift were very nice and friendly.
