Featuring an ensemble cast including John Howard (Packed to the Rafters), Steve Bisley (Red Hill), Tony Bonner (The Lighthorsemen), Harold Hopkins (Gallipoli), Vincent Ball (Breaker Morant), The Highest Honour tells the remarkable true story of Australia's involvement in one of the greatest raids in wartime history.
Comprised of volunteers of all branches of the Allied Forces, Z Special Forces was a secret operations unit of the Australian Army during World War II and came under the direct command of General Douglas Macarthur. In an amazing display of courage and determination, Z Special carried out 284 undercover missions in the South-west Pacific Area, the most famous being two daring raids codenamed Jaywick and Rimau. In the first of these, the Krait, a captured Japanese fishing boat, set out from Australia on the longest range seaborne raid ever undertaken in the history of war. The Krait penetrated deep into Japanese held territory, covering over 17,000 kilometres, to attempt its most deadly mission of all. Their's was a mission that would not only test Z Special's conviction and dedication to one another but the heroic opportunity to garner the highest honour.
