Zulu! The Battle for Rorkes Drift 1879.


Zulu! The Battle for Rorkes Drift 1879.

Edmund Yorke

Fought on the afternoon and night of 22 / 23 January 1879 and immortalised in the film epic Zulu, Rorkes Drift represented one of the most glorious, if subsequently controversial episodes in British military history. For twelve desperate hours, outnumbered by over 25 to 1, barely 140 British soldiers, based at the remote mission station of Rorkes Drift, South Africa, were locked in a ferocious life or death struggle with over 4,000 seasoned warriors of the hitherto victorious Zulu army - the most powerful indigenous African army of the time. Only hours earlier, in the shadow of the ominous Sphinx-like Isandlwana Crag, other elements of this same Zulu force had virtually annihilated a 1700 strong British colonial force - one of the greatest defeats of Queen Victorias reign. In the wake of this massacre, the survival of the British Empire in South Africa rested with the tiny garrison at Rorkes Drift.
