Personal logo PaulCollins Supporting Member of TMP06 Sep 2018 4:35 p.m. PST

I enjoyed 9th Company. A little different perspective.

Stoppage06 Sep 2018 6:45 p.m. PST

9th Company. Believable.

The Beast. Riseable.

Personal logo Bobgnar Supporting Member of TMP06 Sep 2018 9:22 p.m. PST

I have always liked "The Beast" Sometimes called "The Beast of War"

Out of commission, become a pillbox. Out of ammo, become a bunker. Out of time, become heroes.

"Afghan Breakdown" is also quite good from Russian perspective

Has anyone seen "12 Strong"

Mad Guru Supporting Member of TMP17 Sep 2018 10:41 p.m. PST

"The Beast."

Also "The Man Who Would Be King."

Restrepo is great, but a bit different since it's a documentary.

Old Contemptibles Supporting Member of TMP18 Sep 2018 1:06 p.m. PST

1. "The Man Who Would Be King"

2. "The Beast"
