Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan

The Battle of Long Tan is iconic in the Australian and New Zealand experience in the Vietnam War. A labor of love, this project has been a development for over 10 years.

In August 1966, in a Vietnamese rubber plantation called Long Tan, 108 young and mostly inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers are fighting for their lives against 2500 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong soldiers.

In cinemas beginning August 8th in Australia. Hopefully, we’ll see it here in the US.

    I have heard about how the people that make this movie have been working on it for a long time. I would love to see it over here. I have also been waiting to see Kokota about the battle of Papua New Guinea. It was one of the hardest battles of WW2.

    Recommend you read ‘Through Enemy Eyes’ by one of the D Coy platoon commanders.
