= Operation Anaconda: The Battle of Robert's Ridge =
March 4th 2002. The largest land battle of the Afghan War is raging around a remote valley. U.S. Forces, aided by friendly Afghans, are moving in using classic 'Hammer & Anvil' tactics to crash a force of up to 1,0 foreign Al Qaeda die-hards. At Bagram Air Base, a Rangers Special Operations Quick Reaction Force takes off at 04.45 hours. Its mission - to rescue a missing Navy Seal. As their chopper - call sign 'Razor One' - approaches the LZ, no one on board has any idea that they are flying straight into a nest of concealed Al Qaeda bunkers - until four RPGs slam into them. As the chopper crashes and starts to burn, the door gunners give frantic covering fire while the Rangers scramble clear. The dramatic true story of the 21 men on board 'Razor One' and their desperate fight to survive has become known as the The Battle of Roberts' Ridge. In the tradition of Blackhawk Down, the story of the battle is told here through a spectacular and detailed recreation of events, supported by real gun camera footage and exclusive interviews with U.S. commanders, soldiers and F-15 and F-16 pilots involved in the operation.
