Anglo-Zulu War
Part of a larger plan to cover the wars of the British Empire, we are launching the range with the iconic Great British 24th Regiment of Foot. Elements of the regiment were heavily engaged in the desperate and heroic defense at Rorke's Drift where less than 150 British soldiers held off a Zulu force numbering close to 4,000. In this action, the 24th Foot were awarded more Victoria's Crosses than any other single regiment in a single action in British military history. Around the same time, the bulk of the regiment was decimated at the Battle of Islandawana where over confidence led to the annihiliation of the British and allied forces.
