* As the Zulus push the British defenders back from the wall during their first assault, Chard organises a two-rank formation and begins volley fire. With each rank of redcoats firing to cover the over as it reloads then advancing forward, the formation devastates the charging Zulus with machine-like efficiency. The Zulus, who previously demonstrated enough courage to be used as human target practice, break and rout back over the wall.

* There is the climatic battle as the hopelessly outnumbered British fight their enemy's seemingly overwhelming numbers with the intelligent kind of disciplined force multiplier tactics that were sorely missing at the Battle of Isandlwana.

It's the epitome of the "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_line_%28phrase%29#Thin_Red_Line thin red line]]" ethos and mythos the nineteenth-century British Army exemplfied in public opinion.

* Cpl. Allen and Pvt. Hitch are both wounded and unable to keep fighting. So, instead, they crawl about the battlefield distributing ammunition.

* At one point during the battle the Zulu burst into the make-shift field hospital. Surgeon Reynolds, furiously working to save the wounded, ''doesn't even look up'' as the Zulu and British soldiers fight right next to him.

Added DiffLines:

* The injured Corporal Ferdinand Schiess killing a number of Zulu with only one good leg. He uses his crutch as a weapon and saves Lt. Chard's life. Which perhaps saved the entire battle.
