Synopsis by Betsy Boyd

Part of the History's Turning Points series, which explores pivotal moments in world history, History's Turning Points: Zulus at War focuses on the British colonization of Kimberley, home of the bounteous diamond mines, and the subsequent invasion of Zululand. In an effort to halt rebellious Zulu attacks, 5,000 British soldiers aimed to conquer the Zulu-specific territory, but only eight Brits made it out alive. The program, recommended for both students and history enthusiasts, uses on-location dramatizations to tell the story.
