Carousel Sniper Victim


Apr 25, 2019

For three and a half hours, in the pouring rain, amid the mud and shattered trees of a rubber plantation, Major Harry Smith and his company of just 108 young Australian and New Zealand soldiers would fight for their lives, holding off an overwhelming enemy force of battle hardened Viet Cong and North Vietnamese soldiers.

With their ammunition running out, their casualties mounting and the enemy massing for a final assault, each man would search for his own answers and the strength to triumph over an uncertain future. The ensuing Battle of Long Tan became one of the most savage and decisive engagements in ANZAC history.
