The Metal Toy Soldiers of Wm. Hocker, Proprietor


Presented here is the quintessential Victorian military campaign. Not wishing to annex Zulu homelands into their South African colony, the British are nonetheless uncomfortable with the proximity of this warrior culture to their new settlements. A raid in 1879 by Zulus into British territory is enough provocation to prompt a major invasion of Zululand. Most of the British force is immediately massacred by the well organized Zulu Impi at Isandalwanda but the remainder sustains a heroic defense at Rorke's Drift. A second invasion is undertaken with a march on the Zulu capital at Ulundi. The British, in perfect battle square, hold off and decimate wave after wave of Zulu attack. The power of the Zulus is broken, Zululand is eventually annexed to the Colony.
