A hard hitting ITV series that follows Royal Marines recruits from day one of training, through 32 weeks of the longest and hardest military training in the world and then to the front line in Afghanistan. A modern classic.

An American sets out with his motorbike to find both adventure and his sense of manhood, leading him on an extraordinary journey he could not have imagined, including fighting in the Libyan Revolution.
Straight from the front lines in Iraq, THE WAR TAPES is the first war movie filmed by soldiers themselves. These soldiers bypassed Pentagon supervised media to share their experience like never before. Funnier, spicier, and more gut wrenching than news reports, this is Operation Iraqi Freedom as filmed by Sergeant Steve Pink, Sergeant Zack Bazzi and Specialist Mike Moriarty. Steve is a wisecracking carpenter who aspires to be a writer. Zack is a Lebanese-American university student who loves to travel and is fluent in Arabic. Mike is a father who seeks honor and redemption. Each leaves a woman behind - a girlfriend, a mother and a wife. Through their candid footage, these men open their hearts and take us on an unforgettable journey, capturing camaraderie and humor along with the brutal and terrifying experiences they face. These soldiers got the story that 2,700 embedded reporters never could. Written by
The movie reopened some really deep wounds for me. I was in fact one of the guys in Iraq with the unit that filmed this. It is unfortunate that the Executives refused to recognize the unit as a whole. If it weren't for all 180 of us in Charlie Company, 3rd Battalion, 172 Infantry (Mountain), Scranton-Lacy would not have had the opportunity to get this documentary into the theaters. Let's give credit where credit is due. To my "Brothers-In-Arms" A job well done!!!! And yes, I did feel that the movie was great, all I can say is, DOWN WITH THE MEDIA!!!! They can't report the news, even when their lives depend on it. Here is to the TRUE heroes of the Military!
