Good and very interesting
1 February 2000 | by (Queensland, Australia) – See all my reviews

Just watched this recently on video. Shows how the Australians performed during World War One. Many humorous moments. The title music is very good. Shows the historical aspects of this war accurately and gives us an idea what it was really like for the soldiers. Recommended viewing.
