Synopsis

Executive produced and co-written by David Simon and Ed Burns, the team behind the critically acclaimed HBO series The Wire, this seven-part mini-series tells the intimate tale of young Marines whose unit is part of the first wave of the American military assault on Baghdad.

Generation Kill follows the highly trained Marines of First Recon Battalion through the first 40 days of the Iraq war.

It portrays the true story of the young Marines' experience at the tip of the spear of the American invasion, as they contend with equiment shortages, incompetent commanding officers, ever-evolving Rules of Engagement and an unclear strategy.

Generation Kill is based on the award-winning book by Evan Wright, who was embedded with First Recon and originally reported the story in a series of articles for Rolling Stone.

The series also benefited greatly from the presence of two of the real-life Marines it depicts - Sgt. Eric Kocher and Cpl. Jeffrey Carisalez - who served as consultants.

A third First Recon Marine, Sgt. Rudy Reyes, appears in the mini-series, portraying himself.

The series was shot on location in southern Africa, including Upington and Kragbron in South Africa.
