James Mattis, the retired Us Marine Corps general who this week was appointed as Donald Trump’s Secretary of Defense, may be familiar to viewers of HBO’s “Generation Kill.”
That’s because he was portrayed in multiple episodes of the 2008 miniseries by actor Robert Burke. Based on the award-winning book by Evan Wright, the seven-part show followed the highly trained Marines of First Recon Battalion through the first 40 days of the Iraq war.
