Fantastic site! This battle and the men who took part have facinated me since boyhood. There are not many young men around today who would even sign up, let alone fight in a battle with the odds so firmly against them. These men were real heroes!

What a fantastic site! I have been interested in the Zulu war since seeing "Zulu",when it first came out. I think "Zulu dawn"was even better.Your web site is very interesting,especially the accounts of the battle written by the men.Keep up the good work.Excellent!

A great site, were I foud out more about Harry.
I am convinced that Harry is a relation of some sort, as my family history is centred around the west of Gloucester only a few miles from Churcham.

I brought a copy of the film "Zulu" to Iraq when I was deployed and showed it a group of officers the other evening here at Kirkuk Regional Air Base. Needless to say (we are not historians, just military men far from home) the film and the courage it portrayed (on both sides) was entertaining and inspirational. I have seen this film no less that 20 times since boyhood and was amazed at the positive response from those whom have never viewed it. I discovered the web site and passed on from airman to Colonel alike and they have enjoyed it tremendously. Thank you for a literate and inspiring examination of this episode in British history, a particular treat for the many of us with English surnames!! Maj. Tims

A fantastic site that pays a fitting tribute to the courage, professionalism and discipline of the British Army.
Noyice how the British Army is STILL teaching the U.S. Army how to fight a war! Sad to say.

I was proud to serve with 5 Field Squadron from Jan 1971 to April 1976. We would celebrate with a Rorkes Drift Day each year. I love to watch the film, and to think that I served in the same Squadron as Lt John Chard. A true piece of history.

regarding the battle of isandlhwana itīs remarkable to notice the similarities between this tragedy and the battle of Little Big Horn. On both occasions commanding officers were unable to "read" the map of reality and this blindness combined with arrogance left thousands dead on "the field of glory". The great major Robert Rodgers of the famous Rodgerīs Rangers used to say:" Nothing is more important in warfare than to understand what you actually see in front of You "..and you might add: nothing is more dangerous than to underestimate your enemy.
