The story of the 1879 battle of Isandlhwana, one of the worst defeats in British colonial history, 'Zulu Dawn' describes the diplomatic errors and ill-advised military decisions which led to a confrontation between 1,500 British soldiers and a 25,000 strong Zulu army. A prequel to the 1963 classic (and schoolboy's favourite) 'Zulu', the emphasis is again placed upon huge, awe-inspiring battle scenes and the brave stand the soldiers take against unsurmountable odds.
