DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery's press release, August 2016) Taking Fire is a five-part series bringing viewers into the hearts and minds of American soldiers, a captivating experience like nothing ever seen on film. The series is the story of a band of brothers deployed to defend one of the United States' farthest flung outposts at the gateway to one of the deadliest places on earth: the mouth of the Taliban-held Korengal Valley in Northeast Afghanistan. Told by the men who fought on the frontlines themselves and illustrated with real combat footage shot on helmet cameras and handy cams, this never-before-seen material takes viewers along for a visceral experience not witnessed in news reports or traditional documentary portrayals of war. Taking Fire will showcase the renowned and highly regarded 101st Airborne Division, charting one year's deployment on one base in Afghanistan. It is not simply a series of war stories, but a character-driven serial, showing the impact of war on a handful of men during the course of their year on the frontlines.
