Storyline

Winner of four Emmy(R) Awards, including Outstanding Directing for Nonfiction Programming (Jon Alpert, Matthew O'Neill)! The 86th Combat Support Hospital (CSH)--the U.S. Army's premier medical facility in Iraq and formerly one of Saddam Hussein's elite hospitals--is the setting for this unforgettable documentary that puts a human face on the war's cold casualty statistics. Directed by Emmy(R)-winner Jon Alpert (HBO's 'One Year in a Life of Crime'), the film profiles the doctors and nurses at the 86th who fight to save wounded soldiers who are Medevaced (helicoptered) in on a numbingly routine basis. In addition to capturing the drama of victims and caregivers in the ER, the film provides vivid frontline rescue footage with the 54th Medical Company Air Ambulance Team along with tension-filled scenes of soldiers patrolling what is considered the most dangerous road in the world: the five-mile highway from the Baghdad Airport to the CSH.

A glimpse from the trenches
27 May 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This hour-long film documents the day-to-day activities of a US Armed Forces field hospital in Baghdad, with often very graphic, disturbing images. This unit sees an unending stream of carnage, both injured US service men and women, most of whom are very young, as well as Iraqi civilians; all are swept up in the vicious internecine struggles and the violent resistance to the US-led occupation of Iraq. The film highlights the humanity and dedication of the hardworking doctors and nurses of the unit amid the utter chaos of the occupation and the long-simmering civil war; it brings home the tragic impact of this ill-conceived military adventure on the lives of ordinary individuals.

Perhaps the most moving moment of the documentary are the words of an army chaplain next to the body of a fallen soldier whose life the doctors were unable to save: "We hope that his life and his death will hasten the cause of peace -- and this senseless war and violence will end".
