Following on the great tradition of Forty Thousand Horsemen, Charles Chauvels 1944 cinematic account of the Battle of Rommel is a tour de force of Australian film making, telling the story of three courageous men who join the Australian Imperial Force at the beginning of WWII. When war breaks out, tough-as-leather drover Bluey (Grant Taylor, On The Beach), dingo trapper Milo (Chips Rafferty, Smiley) and English gent Peter (Oscar winner Peter Finch, Network) ship out to Africa, ready for adventure. Destined to serve in the North Africa campaign in the 9th Division they become involved in the siege of Tobruk, holding up the advance of Rommel's forces for months. Beleaguered and battle weary the friends fight on, proving to be a considerable challenge to the enemy and a boon to the Allied war effort. Also featuring George Wallace and Joe Valli, Chauvels bold tale of war gives life to the many heroic tales of mateship during WWII. Fully restored and presented in a brand new transfer, The Rats of Tobruk is a rousing tribute to the many brave the soldiers who served their nation.
