This was a great movie to watch and hear. This story is one not many people really know unless you have read the book because it wasn't all over the news. Having lived on Ft. Campbell as a teenager I would always here my father or his soldiers talking about 5th group which is the group is depicted in this movie. A must watch for any military history buff. If you like movies like black hawk down, lone survivor or american sniper, this is for you.
