Seven young Australian soldiers find themselves caught up in the madness and brutality of the Vietnam War. One dies, six survive after being wounded - only to find there are worse things than dying on the battlefield.
Covering the events during the tours of duty between 1966 and 1972, 'Flashback' vividly portrays the ordeals these men encountered - the black humour, brutal confrontation, isolation and the relentless heat and rain of combat in Asia. There are the moments of terror and severe woundings that left many diggers fighting for their lives. Each man's story is also a journey through the effects of post-traumatic stress and the dislocation of post-war service.
