11–Part Documentary Collection
 

Outside the Wire:

To many, Iraq is just a place on a map, but this compelling documentary series showcases the real Iraq, directly from the American soldier's point of view. Follow the captivating journey of filmmaker, reporter and former Marine JD Johannes in this poignant and in-depth look at the war in Iraq. Witness actual battle scenes and testimonies from soldiers on why they fight and what it is like to go outside the wire and into combat. Go beyond the headlines... Forget what the politicians and pundits say... See the war from the ground... Go...OUTSIDE THE WIRE.

Sniper: The Unsceen Warrior:

The sniper, first and foremost, is a hunter...his weapon is a rifle...his prey...another human being. None have embraced this world better than the American sniper. From the American Revolution to the modern wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the American sniper has been the most efficient weapon on the battlefield. This fascinating documentary series delivers heart-pounding real-life tales from the military's most experienced snipers. Few military feats stir the imagination like the image of a pair of riflemen waiting quietly in a building, in a bomb crater, or a mountain pass for the enemy to walk into their crosshairs. Created with full cooperation from the US Marine Corps and The National Rifle Association, you’ll experience the heart-pounding real-life stories of our country’s most experienced combatants.

Bonus feature includes Interactive Timeline which chronicles the past and present transformation of the Sniper. 

Modern War Heroes takes you beyond the headlines and brings you the real story!
