Storyline

This subtle yet effective documentary centers around a group of American soldiers in Germany. The soldiers volunteer to participate in a test of combat maneuver tactics, or, in essence, elaborate war games. The film is beautifully thought provoking and allows you to consider the state of the US defence department. Written by bigwickster
