It is a masterpiece in the cinema of war.Written by
The title is probably a reference to the classic war film To Hell and Back (1955), which starred Audie Murphy as himself in a dramatic re-telling of his experiences as the most decorated American combat soldier of WWII. This could be regarded as a documentary version of the same concept. See more »

Amazing documentary that brings you back, or shows you what it's like before and after.
I want to start off by saying if you don't have any type of military service, I personally don't think you have a right to leave a review of this documentary.
As an OEF veteran, this documentary was really intense and emotional to watch, but only because it brought me back to that country. My tour wasn't anything close to as rough as his, but I know what it's like on some level and I can relate in a general sense. It really shows you how the war in Afghanistan is with no media twists. It shows how we are truly doing our best to help the people of Afghanistan, and also shows his life after the deployment as well. Many people think a soldiers experience with war ends the moment he returns home. This is stuff that stays with you for life, and I really like how they show you both during and after.
This is how it is, so if you want to see what the war in Afghanistan is like without any biased media distorting the information, watch this.
