Valor was present in overwhelming numbers on both sides that day. Eleven Victoria Crosses were won that day. In that day the VC was not awarded posthumously, and so the count would have been higher. This was the most number of those awards won - purchased with blood, really - by a single Regiment in a single action in the history of the Royal Army. The final assault was immortalized in the 1964 film Zulu.
This film could never be made today, more's the pity.
