The TV series tells about the early days of the Iraq war (the US invasion of Iraq in March 2003). The plot - the invasion of Iraq through the eyes of soldiers of the 1st Reconnaissance Battalion USMC. 1st Expeditionary Force entered Iraq from Kuwait to Baghdad and made way through the center of the country - directly from Mesopotamia. During the invasion the Marines have to deal with the lack of food and ammunition, the incompetence of command, the lack of a clear strategy and clear tactics of warfare and other unpleasant situations. The series is based on the true story of the magazine reporter, assigned to the 1st reconnaissance battalion Marine Corps. During the mission he took notes, which served as the source material for the book.

Under orders to consider any Iraqi carrying a weapon hostile, Bravo busts north towards Nasiriyah. Chomping at the bit while others are carrying the fight, the platoon finally gets 'lit up' in a violent but successful skirmish in Al Gharraf.
Having survived its first trial by fire, Bravo presses forward, awaiting orders for a new recon mission. Scoping out a roadside hamlet, the company watches in horror and disbelief as a regimental combat team arrives with guns firing.
Having raced to capture the airfield, First Recon is now miles ahead of the rest of the American force and has some time to rest and regroup. The abandoned supply truck has been looted and destroyed and the company is now down to one meal a day.
As they scope a tiny hamlet, the men of Bravo are frustrated by the capricious nature of the war, and Colbert struggles to defend the actions of the higher-ups. Meanwhile, First Recon runs into a number of surprises as they try to cross a bridge.
Outside of Al Kut, Captain America is over-eager in his attempts to subdue a prisoner, while his men's growing disillusionment with his command is growing more apparent.
Bravo reaches Baghdad, where the men are shocked by the sheer size and scope of the city. As their time there comes to an end, the Marines take inventory and reflect--even as tensions boil over and disaster strikes.
