Summary, etc. The word Zulu means 'heaven', but for the suddenly besieged and minute British garrison at Rorke's Drift, it represented a hellish horde of warriors from the Zulu nation. In what was to become a famous clash of the 1879 Anglo-Zulu war, thousands of poorly armed but well-trained Zulus had unexpectedly begun to hurl themselves in a head-long, deadly onslaught against the hastily barricaded one-time trading station and mission hospital. A fight for survival to the bitter end followed. To stay alive, the hugely outnumbered defenders had to check their individual fears, hold their composure, and show resilience when it really mattered. The defence of Rorke's Drift was an epic encounter and an exceptional piece of soldiering. Its tale of courage in adversity against impossible odds endures; the little-known but significant role of those Irishmen present is no less absorbing a story, and all the more intriguing for its unheralded heroism.
