Taking Fire is war as never seen before. A handful of rookies and their leaders from the US 101st Airborne Division packed personal helmet cameras with their standard issue kit when they flew out for a year's deployment in Afghanistan. For them, 2010 would be spent in America's farthest-flung outpost in the Korangal, deep in Taliban-held country. Excited and nervous, the rookies wanted to capture what they saw to show the people back home. The film they brought back charts an extraordinary first-eye view of modern warfare in one of the deadliest places on earth.Their combat footage plunges viewers into the heart of the action, giving a visceral experience not captured by news reports or traditional documentaries. Deeper still, their unmediated rushes reveal personal struggles with the dilemmas, confusions, joys and sorrows of war. The men leave the USA seeking adventure, inspired to serve their country. What they experience in Afghanistan changes them forever.
