In 1967, the boys of Charlie Company went to war in the Mekong Delta, the homeland of the Viet Cong, and entered a foreign land of murderous heat, unforgiving jungle, and a new age of guerilla warfare. This "band of brothers" journeyed from boot camp to combat, and for the lucky ones, back homeexperiencing their horror, their pain, their misery, their happiness and above all, their camaraderie together. Now, nearly fifty years later, they’re uniting once again to share their stories of courage under fire with the world.
Through gripping first-person accounts and stunning archival footageincluding the soldiers’ own home movies and personal audio tapesBrothers in War recounts the harrowing experiences of one of the last American combat infantry companies to be shipped off to the Vietnam War, their sacrifices, their bond, and their intertwining lives almost fifty years later. Narrated by Charlie Sheen.
This is how a person can understand the Viet Nam War. Told by the men who fought it. The bravery of these men is undeniable, but so is the sadness for the losses they were forced to endure. Another example, and a good one, of how you could hate that war, but NOT the fine young men who fought it.
