29/06/13 Zulu (1964)

3-4000 Zulus defeated by 150 British soldiers, most of whom were injured or ill. Moral of the story? Don't fuck with the British.

Of course, that's ignoring the colonialism and empire building that frames the events depicted in the film.

Also, if the film is to be believed, no one used to bleed in battles back then and people died from bayonet wounds without the blades actually touching them, making a hilarious "Meep!" noise as they expired.
