The Sunday Matinee: Zulu – Stanley Baker, Michael Caine + bonus re historical inaccuracies


Great movie and excellent cast

One of my favourite films probably because my brother and I were taken by our parents to see this at Leicester Square on one of our birthdays as a treat. It was when the film was first released.

Historical Inaccuracies In ZULU

I love Zulu (1964 Movie) however it does have a fair few historical inaccuracies that have always stuck out to me. In the video I list the most glaring (to me)

Feel free to add any I missed in the comments below.

The Battle of Rorke’s Drift, also known as the Defence of Rorke’s Drift, was a battle in the Anglo-Zulu War. The defence of the mission station of Rorke’s Drift, under the command of Lieutenants John Chard of the Royal Engineers and Gonville Bromhead, immediately followed the British Army’s defeat at the Battle of Isandlwana on 22 January 1879, and continued into the following day.
