"Zulu" is probably one of the most popular British military war films of all time.
It depicts the story of the defence of Rorke's Drift during the Zulu War in 1879.
But how close to the truth is the film?
In this video I answer some of the most common questions that my TRshow viewers and subscribers ask me about both the film, "Zulu" and the battle of Rorke's Drift in 1879.

My name is Chris Green ("The History Chap") and I am on a mission to share the amazing history of Britain so that we can appreciate where we have come from and why we are here.
History should not be stuffy or a long list of dates or kings & queens.
So rather than lectures or TRshow animations, I tell stories that bring the past to life.
My aim is to be chat as if I were having a coffee or meal with you. Jean in Maryland, USA recently wrote: "Chris, is the history teacher I wish I had at school!"
Just for the record, I do have a history degree and continue to have a passion for the subject I studied.
