In 1969, over 500 British soldiers fought in a secret war. Considered to be one of the most successful countery insurgency wars ever undertaken, it claimed the lives of 24 Brits. Their names are unknown, their story has been untold - until now. Operation Oman is a 66-minute documentary about a counter-insurgency campaign that, in all likelihood, you know nothing about. Directed by Tristan Ofield, son of Major Nicholas Ofield, the film takes Major Ofield's words and life experiences and reflects on what the conflict meant personally and globally.

The film is constructed utilizing archival footage along with interviews from Colonel Mike Ball and Major Mike Austin, and is narrated by Al Gregg.

Operation Oman is a rather straightforward documentary, at times a tad too reliant on graphics, yet an intelligently built and informative film about an aspect of globally history that is little known. Just getting started on the festival circuit, if you get a chance check it out. The film will most strongly appeal to fans of world and military history, though anyone with a finger on the pulse of today's political and cultural conflicts will realize just how important this film is and this conflict was in the course of history.
