For the first time ever in Australia the Emmy Award winning drama, Tour of Duty, is being released on DVD in its glorious entirety. Complete with timeless original soundtrack the 58 episode boxset focuses on a single platoon of young U.S. soldiers during their tour of combat duty in Vietnam during the late 1960’s.
