Great movie. I'll have to pick up the disk and watch it again.
After the FUBAR of Battle of Isandlwana, Rourke's drift was a textbook example of how a small number of solid troups with good discipline and modern-for-the-day-firepower ( and mild fortification) could hold off massive (139 vs 4000) numerical superiority.
The British army took note. The Second Zulu war was rather one-sided.
