Generation Kill

Ed Burns and David Simon of The Wire have adapted the book Generation Kill into a seven part HBO mini-series. There’s a review on AICN here which is full of the usual typos, spelling and grammatical errors you’d expect from an AICN review but is generally very positive about it. The mini-series is a matter-of-fact account of the lives of an elite group of U.S. marines in the early days of the Iraq War. May or may not be interesting, but with Burns and Simon behind it and being based on true events at least it won’t be sensationalist.
