I have just watched the movie again for the first time in years. Event allowing for the obligatory Brit bashing of that era of Aussie film it is a good watch. There are some interesting parallels between the events in SA and the current situation in Iraq and the way the Govt is happy to stitch up its own to curry favour with the locals. I was also struck by the relevance of the defense councils closing adress. To para phrase dont be suprised it unpleasent things hapen in war, its an unpleasent buisness. Also give clear orders and back your officers when they carry them out. Any one else got a veiw?
