Two men received posthumous awards for their efforts to save the Queen’s color of their regiment after the disastrous engagement against overwhelming numbers of warriors at Isandlwana, and perhaps the most famous of all awards of the Victoria Cross were the eleven gained for the immortal defence of Rorke’s Drift, the battle brought back to the public consciousness by the motion picture _Zulu!_
The conflict has never left the public’s imagination, and continues to stir hot debate among military historians and enthusiasts.
With information compiled over four decades by James W. Bancroft, a well-known and respected historian and author of several publications on the subject, this book brings together more information about the men than has ever before been collected together in one publication.
