This is a graphic account of British soldiers struggling for survival and Zulu warriors 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. Drawn from over 30 eyewitness accounts and letters together with an in depth study of official reports, journals and newspapers printed at the time, new light is shed on several facts that had previously been overlooked in this tragic tale of the battle between Britain and Zulu; fought in defense of the field hospital and storehouse at Rorke's Drift.
