The Outpost

I think I recommended the book here a few years back.
This movie is a small budget yet solid effort to reenact the Battle of COP Keating. Worth a rental.

Agreed, really good.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

Read "Red Platoon" by Romesha. It gives much more context to what happened. And he received the MOH for his actions that day.
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
