This is a graphic account of gallant British soldiers struggling for survival and brave Zulu natives fighting to overpower them, drawn from eyewitness accounts and letters, official reports, and contemporary journals and newspapers. It is written in a way that allows the reader to share the uncertainty and horror of the epic defence of the storehouse and field hospital at Rorke's Drift, Natal, at the beginning of the Zulu War.
