Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

I have always wanted to know what the Zulu Warrior's are saying in their song "The Warriors Chant" from the film Zulu. (It’s a long shot but can anybody roughly translate)

I have wondered what they are saying. At the Battle of the Alamo, the Mexican Army' chanted a song relating to the taking of no prisoners.

In broad outline its a song of praise, its sung as a mark of respect to an oponent deamed worthy through combat. For a litteral translation Ken is probably the guy.
Been a while since Ive heard it, still sends shivers down the spine. Pity its fiction.
