Told by the men who fought on the frontlines themselves and illustrated with real combat footage shot on helmet cameras and handy cams, this material never-before-seen on television takes viewers along for a visceral experience not witnessed in news reports or traditional documentary portrayals of war.

After four months in Afghanistan, SGT Adams now has stronger reasons to make it back home alive. He is also more determined than ever before to get his men home safely - but it won' be easy, as the men are getting desensitized to the non-stop fire.
