Ambush of the English Infantry – The Last of the Mohicans (9/11)

List item

The 1992 film The Last of the Mohicans is one of the few that depicts the French and Indian War in the 1750s. There are numerous battle sequences in the film, but one of the most notable is when a column of a few hundred English infantry in an open field are surrounded and then attacked by thousands of Huron warriors who were hidden in the woods.

The battle begins with the howl of Huron shrieks coming from the woods before they open fire and gun down numerous British soldiers. They then charge forward from both sides and an epic close quarters battle fought with muskets, flintlock pistols, knives, and tomahawks begins. The battle is also incredibly chaotic and well-filmed, and makes you feel as if you were actually there. The scene is also incredibly violent, as many Hurons and British soldiers alike are clubbed, stabbed, shot at point blank range, whacked with tomahawks, or have their throats slit or heads bashed in, and one British officer even has his heart cut out on screen.
