Storyline

The true and tragic story of Operation Rimau, one of the most daring raids of WW2. In September 1944 Ivan Lyon and 22 Australian and British troops attempted to blow up Japanese ships in Singapore. Just 10 miles away from the target they are discovered and so begin a long and desperate bid to escape to Australia. The series shows how after the war it is revealled that 13 men were killed during the pursuit and that the remaining 10 were murdered by the Japanese in a war crime. Tragically this was covered up and their killers were never charged while the men themselves never received any honours for their heroism. Written by Richard Powell <richgpowell@hotmail.com>

Great depiction of the horrors and brotherhoods of war!!!!
9 July 2001 | by (Leicester, England) – See all my reviews

When I first saw the film it really made me feel great and sad at the same time. All cast members are exceptional in their portrail of their characters. The locations are brilliant and the soundtrack is up there with the best of them.

One of the things that improves the quality of the film is the write-up at the end. It gives you a sense of closure on the film. So many films are left open with you thinking well what happened to him or her etc.
