As Real as it can get, Entertaining & Educational.
Honest look at what went on in America's war for "Iraqi Freedom". The series is from the point of view of First Recon Marines. It gives us a realistic look of modern warfare, the combat is the most authentic i have come across, it doesn't hype the action for cinematic values. Be warned you won't get to see much of action but when it happens it's tense.
As in real life so in series the Marines are made up of unique characters, there are capable as well as dumb officers. The soldiers come from different background and races, there are Mexicans, South Americans, Blacks, Rednecks, some are educated, some joined out of patriotism, some were given choice between jail term or marine school. Everyone's brain tuned in differently, the only thing common between them are the unity of brotherhood and them being highly trained killers.For me the best part and the highlight of the series are the humors and sarcastic banter among the soldiers.
After watching the series I did some research and found out most of the names and designation are from real people and actual facts.In fact two of guys played themselves.
The series is pretty much controversy free which is surprising considering it shows some stuff which the Government would have liked kept out of limelight.
Do watch it, it's fun as well as education.
