In 1879 Britain, the largest imperial power in the world, went to war against a small tribal nation. In the first battle of the war, against all the odds, the might of the British Army was crushed by the tenacious Zulu warriors. 133 years on, the Anglo-Zulu War continues to captivate the public interest.
To explore the history of this fascinating conflict the National Army Museum has brought together a group of Anglo-Zulu War scholars for a series of talks.
