In August 1966, in a Vietnamese rubber plantation called Long Tan, 108 young and inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers are fighting for their lives against 2500 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong soldiers.
Pre-production commenced in 2008 and the script was finished in 2014. At the time it was intended that Bruce Beresford would direct and Sam Worthington would play Major Harry Smith.
Part way through the final credits, after showing the actors and pictures of their real life counterparts and some of the principal credits, acknowledgment of the 6RAR's Presidential Unit Citation from the USA made in 1968 but that Australia took 45 years to acknowledge the soldiers who fought in a similar way.
This is followed by an Honour Roll of the Australian Soldiers killed during this battle.
