We Were Soldiers
Honour and patriotism abound in this riveting account of the modern-day cavalry.
Having swapped their horses for helicopters, the entire platoon are dropped behind enemy lines in nthe Vietnamese war.
Their task is to hold their position at all costs - and the cost is extremely high!
Based on a true story, this war movie is memorable for the inspiring pep talks given by the officer in command (Mel Gibson), as well as the behind the scenes drama of how the wives back home dealt with the news of their soldier's deaths.
Bravery, cameraderie, and teamwork are depicted on both sides of the story.
