Korengal picks up where Restrepo left off…the same men, the same valley, the same commanders, but a very different look at the experience of war. Korengal explains how war works, what it feels like and what it does to the young men who fight it.
As one cheers when they kill an enemy fighter, another looks into the camera and asks if God will ever forgive them for all the killing. As one grieves the loss of his friend in combat, another explains why he missed the war after his deployment ended and he would go back in a heartbeat if he could.
Every bit as intense and affecting as Restrepo, Korengal goes a step further in bringing the war into peoples’ living rooms back home.
