Storyline

In the gathering dusk of 18 August 1966, 108 young, inexperienced Australian and NZ soldiers are separated and surrounded, fighting for their lives, holding off an overwhelming force of 2,500 battle-hardened Viet Cong and North Vietnamese soldiers. And, in the pouring rain, amid the mud and shattered trees of a rubber plantation called Long Tan, with their ammunition running out and another Vietnamese battalion massing for the final assault, the digger's situation seemed hopeless. Long Tan is the true story of ordinary boys who became extraordinary men. Written by Martin Walsh

This documentary
29 January 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Im surprised this documentary does not have any comments, It was put together extremely well and used some great cinematic techniques. This is how a documentary should be made, particularly Australian doco's. the production team kept the story humble, without the need to introduce over the top re-enactments focused more on the actors/extras ability rather than the story.

'Battle of Long Tan' deserves a shedload of credit and could only be produced by a team of people that had genuine enthusiasm getting this relatively little known story into the face of the public eye(unfortunate it will probably only be seen by the Aus/NZ public). Im sure this will be an Australia day TV fixture.
