An Army patrol in Mongah/Zoldag, Afghanistan — one of the Taliban's original strongholds — turns into a close-range ambush. Pinned down by the Taliban in extremely close quarters, the elite infantry group unleashes grenades, mortars and rockets on the enemy in a battle for their lives. And when the Marines patrol a small village in southern Afghanistan known to be a staging ground for Taliban attacks against American forces, the Marines are ambushed by the enemy.
