Generation Kill

Interesting drama series made by the makers of The Wire. This series is about the new generation of soldiers in a war atmosphere, and the story deals around US’ invasion of Iraq. The series shows, as The Wire, a realistic picture of the events as possible, and you’ll see young soldiers who suddenly are put in a war. A number of these soldiers are close to brain dead, and their leaders are a big question of wonder on why they have been put in charge without any leadership qualities. Based on this, there wouldn’t be difficult to understand why the American war in Iraq has gone the way it has gone.

The events showed in the series will engage you, and will confirm a lot of things you hear in the media. On the other hand, it also shows how the new generation thinks and acts.

The series is based on a book, written by a reporter in Rolling Stone who was with the military during the invasion.

Rating: 5 of 6
