For those of you who don't know and for those of you who really liked the book, HBO is producing a seven-part miniseries on the LT Fick's platoon of First Recon Marines. Airing is in July,see the trailer here .

My personal take (mostly based on the trailer): This should be really good. Fox [email protected]!% a drama about troops in Iraq and there have been numerous documentaries about soldiers overseas, but I believe this is the first series (mini- or not) that deals with the war in (hopefully) a non-political way (ala Band of Brothers or the in production The Pacific (working title)). I look forward to this and since it was created by the guys who did The Wire, it'll be sharp and gritty, much like Evan Wright's book.
