Description

Get ready to see the new face of American war. HBO presents this seven-part miniseries that focuses on the first 40 days of the war in Iraq as seen through the eyes of the elite group of U.S. Marines who spearheaded the invasion. Based on Evan Wright's 2004 non-fiction book, the miniseries follows the First Recon Marine division as they gathered reconnaissance from behind enemy lines and led the attack on Iraq in March of 2003. The result is a vivid account of the soldiers who rode alongside Wright (an embedded journalist working for Rolling Stone magazine) for two months--and of the collective forces that guided these highly trained Marines in an often-improvised initiative aimed at liberating Iraq from the control of Saddam Hussein.
