About to watch Zulu in bed. Eleven victoria crosses were issued for the defence of Rorke's Drift. The Zulus under Dabulamanzi couldn't sieze on their triumph at the battle of Isandlwana. Anyone fancying this classic should read up on King Shaka and zulu tactics. The horns of the buffalo (encirclement) is an example of the zulu's superior and advanced battle tactics. It's quite intetesting.
