Around 3 quarters of the way in, the hectic music from the final battle scene of Zulu dawn in played during Tarentino's WW II flick "Inglorious Bastards". A good movie in its own right, I wa ...

Did you happen to see the Spike TV "Deadliest Warrior" show which features a duel between William Wallace and King Shaka? DW is one of the silliest shows I've ever seen, to say its quite bad ...

Hello there, I'm currently in the early stages of possibly putting a 1879 & 2nd Anglo-Boer War impression together. Where can I get the best possible shaped pith helmet? I've seen tonnes of them o ...
