  • He does accomplish his main task, to take us into places civilians rarely go, and give witness to the immense challenges soldiers like his brothers face every second they’re required to be at war. show more

  • Allowed remarkable access, presumably because of the familial connections, Rademacher comes up with compellingly unfamiliar documentary footage. show more

  • An honest, on-the-ground documentary about the lives of Americans fighting there. It has no spin. It's not left or right. show more
