As the battle of WWII fiercely continued into 1942, placing a great strain on Allied Forces, an empowered Japanese Army swept through the South Pacific towards the Australian mainland. Sensing an immediate threat of invasion, civilian planters were enlisted and joined commissioned soldiers to form highly trained espionage teams known as SPYFORCE, supervised by Allied Headquarters back in Australia. Surrounded by imminent danger, these men were directed into classified sabotage operations deep behind enemy lines throughout the Pacific area to aid the Allied war effort.
I bought the full 8 disc series some time ago and watched the first episode, l had already seen it in the 1970's, l had seen Jack Thompson in a few Aussie films, but never seen Peter Sumner before, it was gritty, filmed on location, the interaction between Thompson and Sumner was always good, but Redmond Phillips as their boss took no nonsense from either of them, Sumner played a German born character, in the 1st episode called The General Sumner has to impersonate a German, and plays it right down the line, this is the basis of much friction between Thompson and Sumner, in fact in many episodes Thompson's nick name for Sumner is 'Adolf'. All in all a great series, l'm just about to start disc 2, l think l bought the series off Amazon, l give this series a big 10.
