Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan (R13)

August 18, 1966, South Vietnam. For three and a half hours, in the pouring rain, amid the mud and shattered trees of a rubber plantation called Long Tan, Major Harry Smith and his dispersed company of 108 young and mostly inexperienced ANZAC soldiers are fighting for their lives. They’re holding off an overwhelming enemy force of 2,500 battle-hardened Viet Cong and North Vietnamese soldiers. With their ammunition running out, their casualties mounting, and the enemy massing for a final assault, each man begins to search for the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honour, decency and courage. The Battle of Long Tan is one of the most savage and decisive engagements in Australian military history, earning both the US and South Vietnamese Presidential Unit Citations for gallantry.
