When Gen. Lord Chelmsford (Peter O'Toole) sends in British troops to fight the South African Zulu tribes, Col. Anthony Dumford (Burt Lancaster) leads his men into the fatal Battle of Isandhlwaba where they are greatly outnumbered. During the bloody battle, 30,000 Zulu warriors kill 1,500 British troops. This movie shows the events that led up to the siege at Rorke's Drift in "Zulu" (1964) and again shows the hostility between the British and native South Africans.
