Ultimate heroism and sacrifice is about ready to take place up on the big screen in this pulse pounding true story that exemplifies the ANZAC spirit to its fullest in Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan.
Here’s the official synopsis:
One late afternoon in 1966, in the pouring rain, amid the mud and shattered trees of a Vietnamese rubber plantation called Long Tan, Major Harry Smith (Travis Fimmel) and his dispersed company of 108 young and mostly inexperienced Australian and New Zealand 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. This is their untold story.
