Storyline

Through gripping first-person accounts and digitally remastered archival footage, including the soldiers' own home movies and personal audio tapes, Brothers in War recounts the harrowing combat experiences of the men of Charlie Company - one of the last American combat infantry companies to be drafted, trained and sent to fight together in Vietnam. The two-hour special is fittingly narrated by Charlie Sheen, who rose to stardom after his 1986 performance as a Vietnam soldier in "Platoon." Written by National Geographic

Brothers of War
27 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched the movie, saw the TRUENESS of the events, the action, the bravery, and the Heartache and pain of those soldiers.

To hear the story's, i got to know them as well (to some degree) and it pained me when they were killed.

I was in Vietnam in 67-68, and know first hand of the lay of the land, and the VC activity. I was not in the infantry, and can only THANK THOSE WHO WERE, for their Bravery everyday.............The film showed that side as well.

What the soldiers did when faced with over whelming odds..............GREAT LEADERS, Both in Officers and NCO, and those not NCO's.

A movie to watch. Many THANKS AS WELL TO CHARLIE SHEEN.

Thank You Charlie for supporting our MILITARY..............

Dan
