: Mentioned the movie "Zulu" yesterday ... though it takes place, obviously, in Africa, the situation there was very similar to that here in North America ... substitute Zulus for Indians, British for, well, BRITISH (and Americans).
: Here's a bit more, in case any of you are interested in this fascinating era ... actually, there are 3 superb films, that are not only fun viewing, but excellent history lessons - as films go, extremely true to the real events.

I'm a big buff of the Boer War as well, [its one of the wars we *wargame* often] I wish there were more films about that period of South African history.
"Breaker Morant" comes to mind, and if I remember correctly is a pretty acurate representation as well [starred Edward Woodward].
