Pretty much the most eye-opening way you could spend 90 minutes watching images on a screen. Hundreds of TV programs and features have been made on the subject, but none so vividly give the sense of what it’s like to live, and die, as a contemporary U.S. soldier.” —Steve Zeitchik, Los Angeles Times
