About the Movie
Immediately after the attacks on September 11, 2001, the United States government initiated a secret war against Afghanistan, deploying fewer than one hundred Special Forces troops to fight back. Building a coalition with the rebels of the Northern Alliance, the US troops faced off against the Taliban and the terrorist organization al-Qaeda. They succeeded in driving both out of power by the end of 2001 with minimal casualties and without conventional, large-scale military operations. Despite this victory, the U.S. and its allies soon became mired in a seemingly never-ending war. This untold story features unprecedented access to the Green Berets who played pivotal roles in these covert missions. Reflecting on their experiences and on the brothers-in-arms they lost, these elite soldiers offer a riveting celebration of valor and a sobering, cautionary tale. LEGION OF BROTHERS is produced by CNN films and directed by Greg Barker (“Manhunt”).

Fresh: You'll have to wade through several topics to get to the heart of "Legion of Brothers," but once you're there, some intense stories make the effort worthwhile.
Fresh: Its up-close portrait of heroic dedication in extreme situations has the dramatic immediacy and air of privileged access to impress both hawks and doves.
Fresh: "Legion of Brothers" is a story of heroism writ bold, but it is also something more.
Fresh: Viewers may at times be hard pressed to keep track of what exactly is going on, but the essential truths about combat, including post-traumatic stress, are vividly conveyed.

Every one should see this film.
History made by US Army SOF
Outstanding yet heartbreaking story of US Army Green Berets during the post 9/11 invasion of Afghanistan. Story follows the 5th Special Forces Group, (less than 100 Green Berets on the ground), along with massive US air power, and local tribal leaders, as they rest control of Afghanistan from the Taliban. History making story of a true Green Beret Mission. JFK would be proud.
My heart goes out to the Davis family and others who lost their loved ones in defense of our nation.
It's brave soldiers like LTC Jason Amerine and his team of Green Berets that keep our citizens safe. Thank-you, 5th Group.
