Summary
Iraq's "Triangle of Death", 2005: A platoon of young soldiers from a US regiment known as the "Black Heart Brigade" is deployed in a veritable meat grinder of counter-insurgency just south of Baghdad. Almost immediately, the attacks begin: every day another roadside bomb, another colleague blown to pieces. As the daily violence chips away, and chips away at their sanity, the 35 young men of 1st Platoon, Bravo Company descend into a tailspin of poor discipline, substance abuse, and brutality - with tragic results
