Long Tan: the True Story DVD
The internationally-acclaimed classic documentary of Australia’s Vietnam War, Long Tan: the True Story investigates the battle of Long Tan, when D Company, a patrol of untried Australians and New Zealanders, held off repeated attacks by a massed force of NVA and Viet Cong units outnumbering them 20 to 1. For the Viet Cong, this was to be a master stroke—annihilate the soldiers of two nations, thus forcing Australia and New Zealand to withdraw from Vietnam, embarrassing the US, and influencing the looming Manila peace talks.
This documentary film has been broadcast on television in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and across the Asia-Pacific region. It is now available for purchase on DVD from the Forward Scout Films store.
