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.

The ensuing Battle of Long Tan became one of the most savage and decisive engagements in ANZAC history.
