Australian Army Action In Vietnam

The Australian Army serves in Vietnam

Made by The Commonwealth Film Unit 1966.
Directed by John Abbott.

In making this film about the Vietnam War, the Australian Commonwealth Film Unit did not look for battles and heroes. This was to be the story of the young Australians who were carrying on the standards of service begun by their grandfathers during the First World War.

The emphasis was on people, both Australian and Vietnamese. The intention was to show what war really feels like.
