Just watched the movie "Danger Close" on Amazon Prime. Probably one of the most intense Vietnam movies I've seen. I enjoyed it quite a bit. The lead actor is Travis Fimmel (Ragnar Lothbrok on Vikings). I hope it was an accurate and respectful showing for Delta Company!

On August 18, 1966, an isolated infantry group of 108 men from the D Company, 6th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment and three New Zealanders from an artillery forward observation party, plus RAAF helicopters and a relief force of armoured personnel carriers, fought a battle opposing a vastly superior force, in abysmal weather conditions, for an entire afternoon.

It would be really cool to see a movie entirely from the North Vietnamese/Viet Cong perspective.
