This war anthology includes the films JARHEAD, BLACK HAWK DOWN and TEARS OF THE SUN. In JARHEAD, young recruit Swofford undertakes some rigorous basic training under the steely, watchful eye of Staff Sgt. Sykes. Impressed, Sykes invites Swofford to join his team, and partners him with Troy, ultimately taking them to Saudi Arabia to fight in the first Gulf War. Once they arrive in the punishing heat of the desert, the long wait for battle sends many of the Marines dangerously close to the brink of insanity. BLACK HAWK DOWN is an account of an American UN Peacekeeping Force, which landed in Mogadishu, Somalia in October 1993. Their mission is to abduct the two top lieutenants of a local warlord, but enemy forces quickly surround the team and a fifteen hour fierce, ground battle ensues. In TEARS OF THE SUN, a Navy SEAL officer is sent to rescue a doctor from war torn Nigeria, however on arrival, the doctor refuses to abandon the refugees in her care and she implores the officer to escort them to the Cameroon border.
