    The Zulu War of remains one of the best known British colonial wars and included two battles whose names reverberate through history. At Isandlwana the Zulus inflicted a crushing defeat on the British; the gallant British defence at Rorke's Drift followed and re-established British prestige. The Battle of Isandlwana proved to be the worst defeat ever suffered by British forces against native opposition. All told, the battle cost the British killed as well as of their African troops for a total of 1, dead. Casualties among the African forces tended to be lower as they filtered away from the battle during its early stages.
