Storyline

Set at Combat Outpost Keating in 2009, soldiers are ordered to establish a military based in an isolated Afghan province butting up against Pakistan, when the D.C. policy is to protect locals and win hearts and minds by supporting economic development. The base is surrounded by mountains, leaving the troops as sitting ducks. After insurgents selectively shell them and sabotage aid projects, the troops are finally attacked by over 400 Taliban fighters in the bloodiest attack of that year.
