Editorial Reviews

This video includes 3 hours of uncensored film footage of Marines fighting their way house-to-house through the streets of Fallujah. All the film footage was shot by USMC combat camera from November 7th through December 30th 2004. The Second Battle of Fallujah (code-named Operation Al-Fajr - "The Dawn" in Arabic, and Operation Phantom Fury) was a joint U.S.-Iraqi offensive led by the U.S. Marine Corps against the Iraqi insurgency stronghold in the city of Fallujah. The U.S. military called it "some of the heaviest urban combat U.S. Marines have been involved in since the Battle of Hue City in Vietnam." Please note! The violence and language in this video is graphic.

This footage appears to have been filmed by cameraperson embedded with a group of US soldiers. The video itself is high-quality footage, very clear picture and sound throughout the video. At 3-hours long, it is indeed packed with ALOT of footage. The camera follows different groups of soldiers going through the neighborhoods and houses of Fallujah, Iraq in the day and night.

If you are looking for raw footage then this is for you, as the camera is in the middle of soldiers the whole time. You get to see alot of the weapons in operation that soldiers are using in Iraq - machine guns, tanks, missile launchers, grenade launchers, etc as well as tactics they use to clear out neighborhoods and houses of weapons and insurgents. Alot of maching gun fire and alot of things being blown up by the ground troops. You get to see what the neighborhoods, buildings, etc and environment look like. (which is what i hoped to learn by watching this film - what it looks like in real-life, not in a movie or video game). You get to see what Iraq war looks like on the ground, from the soldier's perspective.

From what I saw there is no clear footage of living/moving targets being destroyed and no dead people in this film.

.
The movie must have been made by the PC-Committee & the I-hate-America clowns. It does NOT focus on the battle of Haditha at all but rather on a single incident of that bloody town. It puts Americans down and the Iraqis glorified.
The movie has nothing to do with the title except location.

This is a compilation of footage, and for that it is great however the video is disorganized and there is no narration so it is difficult to watch, particularly if you were not there or do not have someone who can narrate it with you.

I was in Fallujah for this operation and missed all the broadcast news coverage at the time. I was hoping to see...well, something more than what I got. I would have been mildly disappointed if someone had given this to me for free.
