Zulu Dawn DVD

Zulu Dawn DVD
In 1879, the British Colonies, in response to the perceived threat of the Zulu Nation, deliver a deliberately unacceptable ultimatum to the King who responds by putting his people on a war footing. Confident in their weapons technology and organizational ability to crush the seemingly outclassed primitive enemy, the British invade Zululand. General Lord Chelmsford sends in hundreds of British troops in order to squash the spear-carrying Africans with superior fire power. The sheer number of Zulus, however, overwhelms the British infantry. Featuring an all-star cast in Peter O'Toole, Burt Lancaster, Denholm Elliot and Sir John Mills, the film was originally intended as a companion piece to the 1964 classic 'Zulu'. However, this tense drama stands alone as one of the finest historical action movies ever made, accurately re-telling the military disaster of the British invasion of Zululand.
