OVERVIEW

Brief Synopsis

In 1879, the British Colonies, in response to the perceived threat of the Zulu Nation, deliver a deliberately unacceptable ultimatum to the King who responds by putting his people on a war footing. Confident in their weapons technology and organization's ability to crush the seemingly outclassed primitive enemy, the British invade Zululand. We follow the events of this invasion through the eyes of characters on both sides as the British learn the hard way at Isandlwana just how badly in their racist arrogance they had underestimated the skill, might and courage of their foe.
