|Rats of Tobruk|
The legendary defence of Tobruk by Australian infantry forces is dramatised through the lives of three ordinary soldiers played by Chips Rafferty, Grant Taylor and Peter Finch.
Praised by returned servicemen for its treatment of the tragedy of war, The Rats of Tobruk
is considered a seminal work for its recreation of recent history with unprecedented realism and its authenticity.
