Gallantry Awards at Rorke's Drift

'Zulu!' - the epic motion picture, is based on the defence of Rorke's Drift in 1879, when a garrison of British soldiers defended a supply depot and field hospital against an army of Zulu warriors. This extensively researched publication contains biographical tributes to the 15 men who were awarded the Victoria Cross or the Distinguished Conduct Medal during the famous action.
