Shot on home video cameras by the very soldiers who were part of the hardest hit combat unit of the Iraq War, this remarkable program weaves heart-pounding digital camera footage with revealing interviews following the action. From the initial enthusiasm of the newly deployed troops to the dramatic outcomes of their combat missions. Distinguished by powerful, unflinching imagery and the frank, heartfelt, and poignant words of the soldiers speaking directly to the viewer, COMBAT DIARY: THE MARINES OF LIMA COMPANY offers an honest and heartbreaking glimpse at the terrifying reality of war.
This is an excellent account of the limited kind of combat footage that was taken by ordinary marines. It is sad to see so many struggling now w/daily life back here in the U.S. It seems that many of these soldiers have lost what so many of us take for granted; a mind that is not scarred with the horrific images of war. Even my generation (myself included) only knows war from the images we watch, the games we play, and the movies we watch depicting war. It is so easy for us to just turn it off in our minds because we do not have friends and family that have been killed in the line of duty. It seems too often we curse the soldiers in what so many of us call a waste of life, when it isn稚 the individual soldiers making the decisions to be fighting in Iraq. As it has been said many times before, 泥on稚 shoot the messenger.・I would recommend this film to anyone that has any feelings about the war in Iraq, and see the individuals that are fighting for what is our continued freedom in North America. My personal feelings aside, remember that it is just normal people fighting in extraordinary times.
