This chapter examines the portrayal of the enemy in selected Australian film and television programs about World War One made since 1980. It begins by contextualising the representation of enemy with a quick overview of Australian war cinema during the Great War and the inter-war periods, before examining in detail the productions which occurred in two waves: 1980-1990, and 2010-2015.
