Jamie Dornan Holds The Ground In Siege Of Jadotville

In September 1961, the United Nations intervened into the Katang conflict in Congo-Léopoldville in Central Africa. A company of lightly-armed Irish UN Troops were attacked by soldiers loyal to Katangese PM Moise Tshombe. The assault lasted for six days as the troops waited for a relief force to arrive. It was called the Siege of Jadotville.

Just how the siege ended can be found on-line… or in a new Netflix film debuting October 7th.

The Siege of Jadotville stars Jamie Dornan, Mark Strong and Jason O'Mara.
