"JANUARY 1879 - ZULULAND. Lord Chelmsford, commander of British forces in South Africa, leads an invasion into Zululand. At the head of his main spearhead column, he expects a quick and decisive campaign against a poorly armed, ill-disciplined force of tribesmen. To achieve this aim he has with him the veteran soldiers from the 24th Regiment, 'Old Sweats' as they are referred to, men with years of campaigning behind them. Just days into the invasion Chelmsford's force sets up camp beside a strangely shaped crag, barely a few miles from the safety of the British Colony of Natal. The battle that develops in the shadow of that mountain, with British redcoats fighting hand-to-hand with their Zulu foe, will become the stuff of legend. It is a story punctuated with acts of incredible courage and heroism and moving sacrifice, a human drama that will shock the world. ISANDLWANA!"
