      Robert Menzies – ‘Bob’ Menzies or Mr Menzies – was Australia’s longest-serving Prime Minister.

I don’t think John le Carré cares much for the film, but it, like the book, has a stark simplicity, showing a cold war growing inevitably out of blurred margins of the hot one. It’s one of my favourite films. Australia’s involvement in the Vietnam War “The decision to send an Australian infantry battalion to Vietnam is a grave one; these are inescapable obligations which fall on us because of our position, treaties and friendship. There was no alternative but to respond as we have. ” - Robert Menzies The Vietnam War was the longest major conflict in which Australia has.
