| Not all about death and firefights
Legion of Brothers is a great documentary that not only is entertaining but, also shows the public what life is like when you're at war. This documentary did an amazing job of revealing the life of a soldier at war. Not only did we see challenges that he faced, we saw challenges that his family and loved ones faced. The family of the soldiers went through a very tough time as well and most people don't realize that, but this film highlighted that part of war. This documentary showed both the good and bad of war and didn't try to hide certain parts of it. We stepped into a soldiers shoes both in war and in civilian life. This is what made the film so special. Most war films are all about the action and gore but this film showed what it is really like. The country was hurting after 9/11 and this film did a great job of displaying the fight against terrorism as it really happened. War is not all action and firefights soldiers in war face a lot of adversity back home as well. This documentary was meant to really touch its viewers and show war as it really is, and that is exactly what it did.
