About this Episode

This film has been requested many times; usually by our Aussie and Kiwi listeners, and occasionally by people who think our podcast is entirely dedicated to this one film from 2019.

Well-known down under, but not as much in the rest of the world, this is the story of one of the most famous battles Anzac troops fought in the Vietnam War. They were outnumbered between 10 and 20-to-1, and had it not been for their tactical decision-making, the fight could have had a very different outcome.

We’ve done films “based on true events” (and people) many times before; how does this one compare to We Were Soldiers or The Outpost? Did they do justice to the real soldiers who fought in this battle?
