This text is a graphic account of gallant British soldiers struggling for survival and brave Zulu natives fighting to overpower them in the defence of the storehouse and field hospital at Rorke's Drift, Natal, at the beginning of the Zulu War. The author has drawn from eye-witness accounts and letters, offical reports, contemporary journals and newspapers, allowing the reader to share in the uncertainty and horror of this epic battle.
