This is not the war you saw on the 5 o’clock news. This is the real war in Iraq with real soldiers and real terrorists. And real footage so intense at times that you’ll forget you’re not really there. Experience the fears, frustrations and raw emotions of actual Marines, who “just deal” as they hunt for terrorists in a place where suicide bombers and IEDs could be waiting to kill them around every hot, dusty corner. Marine Recon is a four-part documentary created by award-winning filmmaker Gordon Forbes III, who was embedded with Alpha Company, US Marine Corps’ 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion, during their 2005 deployment to Iraq. Be there for their final few weeks of training, and then deploy to Iraq’s Sunni Triangle with them to fight the War on Terror. It’s a trip they – and you – will never forget.
