Straight from the front lines in Iraq, The War Tapes is the first war movie filmed by soldiers themselves. While thousands have died in Iraq, hundreds of thousands have returned alive. The War Tapes is the untold story of the soldiers that never make the evening news or the morning paper. It is the story shared by every surviving warrior in history -- an insight into war from those who have been there.

The War Tapes is Operation Iraqi Freedom as filmed by Sergeant Steve Pink, Sergeant Zack Bazzi and Specialist Mike Moriarty.

Steve is a wisecracking carpenter who aspires to be a writer. Zack is a Lebanese-American university student who loves to travel and is fluent in Arabic. Mike is a father who seeks honor and redemption. Each leaves a woman behind -- a girlfriend, a mother, and a wife.

Through their candid footage, these men open their hearts and take us on an unforgettable journey, capturing camaraderie and humor along with the brutal and terrifying experiences they face.
