Legion of Brothers (2017)


‘Legion of Brothers’ tells the story of US Special Forces soldiers who played a key role in overthrowing Afghanistan’s ruling Taliban regime shortly after 9/11.


Immediately after the 9/11 attacks, fewer than 100 US Troops (Green Berets) were sent on a secret mission to overthrow the Taliban in a series of secret missions.

What happens next is equal parts war-origin story and cautionary tale, illuminating the impact of 15 years of constant combat.
