Storyline

Capturing the spirit of the age and the turmoil of the times, Sword of Honour tells the heartbreaking story of a nation at war, the soldiers who left their families to fight, the social upheaval and the emotionally perilous journey back home. At 21, Tony Lawrence (Logie winner Andrew Clarke, ANZACs) won the Military College's Sword of Honour. At 22 he was fighting in the Vietnam War with his best friend and Brother in Law, Frank Vittorio (Alan Fletcher, Neighbours), just as the conflict began to escalate. The horrors and carnage of the war leave an indellible impression on the two young men - ripping them apart from their families, girlfriends and country. Back home after the devastation of the battlefields, both men try to cope with life in their own way. Sword of Honour is a gripping 6 hour 4-part miniseries that will take you back to a time and conflict that created heroes and divided a nation. Written by Sande Baulch

Great mini series
5 February 2009 | by (Phnom Penh) – See all my reviews

At 21 Tony Lawrence won the Military Academy's Sword of Honour. At 22 he was fighting in Vietnam. With his best friend and brother-in-law Frank Vittorio, Tony was sent to Vietnam just as the war began to escalate. The horrors and carnage of the war leave an indelible impression on the two young men - ripping them apart from their families, girlfriends and country. Back home after the devastation and ugly battlefields, both try to cope with life in their own way. For Tony wandering into the wilderness is one way of coming to terms with the horror he has experienced. A wandering that takes him back to the killing fields where it all started...

One of the best mini series made about Australia's involvement in Vietnam Rare because of its controversial portrayal of how the Vets suffered for being the pawns of crooked politicians like Menzies
