Based on journalist Evan Wright's award winning book, this HBO miniseries explores U.S. invasion of Iraq from the perspective of the U.S. Marines Corps 1st Reconnaissance Battalion. By following the battalion in their three-week trek from northern Kuwait to Baghdad, Generation Kill conveys the speed and confusion of the invasion. Often undersupplied and ordered to keep moving, the Marines begin to question their purpose when they confront problems they are ill-equipped to address and realize that they inadvertently caused.
