Description Technical Specs
 
Arguably the most close-up and comprehensive view of the Iraq War to be filmed from the perspective of the American soldiers on the ground, this 10-part television series follows an Arkansas National Guard Unit from the farms and fields of the South to the bloody streets of Baghdad. Filmmakers Brent and Craig Renaud capture the lives of citizen soldiers back home in Arkansas, and then follow them through the course of their deployment, where the unit endures more deaths than any other brigade in Iraq. Among the unforgettable images are scenes of full-scale combat, a soldier's funeral, the birth of a first child, and a heart-rending homecoming. "The most intimate and memorable look at Americans in the Iraqi conflict" (The New York Times).
