American forces occupying Iraq are ambushed in a Baghdad neighborhood. After multiple failed rescue attempts, 1st Calvary Division will call for help from a brave armor company. That armor company and their 6 tanks will launch a brave but costly attack to rescue the ambushed unit.
THE LONG ROAD HOME is a Nat Geo 8 episode series that chronicles a real life ambush of U.S troops. Our guest, Mikko Alanne wrote and produced this television series.
He talks (19 minutes into this episode) with Mark Thompson and Laura House (comedy writer) about what went into bringing the story to the screen.
The show starts with Mark's quick thoughts on the Paul Manafort and assorted indictments (first 3 minutes of show) and then THE FAST 15 with Michael Shure talking about other political issues and ultimately challenging Mark to a game involving Vegas movies. Fun for the whole family.
