Operation Homecoming

A documentary about the war, as told by the men fighting it.

This is absurdly effective. I hate talking about it that way -- in cinematic terms -- because yes, of course, I know this is recounting a real story of real heroes in a real ambush. Still, props have to be given on that score.

Here's the trailer for it. It's being shown on PBS as part of its (conservative-pushed) "Crossroads" series of documentaries about the war.

Thanks to Op-For, who has more about the series, this particular documentary, and the milblogger Colby Buzzell, whose writings provide the narrative for the animated clip.
