Jarhead - Willkommen im Dreck

Irak 1991: Die US-Marines wühlen sich durch den heißen Wüstensand – immer dem Feind entgegen. Mittendrin Sergeant Sykes, Anführer eines Marine-Platoons, und dessen Scharfschütze Swoof, soeben aus dem Ausbildungscamp entlassen. Bewaffnet mir einem Präzisionsgewehr, behangen mit einem Fünzig-Kilo-Rucksack, ziehen sie ins Ungewisse. Schutzlos der erbarmungslosen Hitze und den irakischen Soldaten ausgeliefert, können sie ihre Tage nur mit schwarzem Humor und einer deftigen Prise Sarkasmus ertragen. Sie kömpfen in einem Land, das sie nicht kennen, gegen einen Feind, den sie nicht sehen, in einem Krieg, den sie nicht verstehen. Was wird der nächste Tag bringen?

Jarhead : La Fin de l'innocence

Été 1990. Anthony Swofford, fils et petit‐fils de militaires, vient tout juste de fêter son vingtième anniversaire lorsqu’il est envoyé dans le désert saoudien. La Guerre du Golfe vient d’éclater, son bataillon de Marines est parmi les premiers à se déployer dans cette aride et immense étendue de sable. Pour ces jeunes déracinés, gavés d’images et de phraséologie guerrières, ivres de rock et de bière, commence alors la longue et dérisoire attente d’un ennemi fantôme. La soif, la peur, l’épuisement, l’ennui, les frustrations lancinantes, les tensions extrêmes s’additionnent dans un climat de plus en plus délétère et explosif. Dans cet enfer naîtront pourtant de surprenantes et inaltérables amitiés entre compagnons d’armes liés par le vieux serment des Marines.

Italy Italian (Italiano)

Swofford, da tutti chiamato 'Swoff', arruolatosi come suo padre e suo nonno prima di lui, passa dalla noiosa gavetta in campo all'azione di guerra durante l'operazione Desert Storm, nella prima Guerra del Golfo. In spalla un fucile da cecchino e uno zaino da 45 chili, attraversa i deserti mediorientali privo di protezione dal caldo tremendo o dai soldati Iracheni, sempre potenzialmente all'orizzonte.

    Battle-scarred and disillusioned by the war, Corporal Chris Merrimette is put in charge of a unit whose next mission is to resupply a remote outpost on the edge of Taliban-controlled territory. While driving through the hostile Helmand province, a Navy SEAL flags down their convoy and enlists the unit on an operation of international importance: they must help an Afghan woman famous for her defiance of the Taliban escape the country. Without tanks or air support, Merrimette and his team will need all the courage and firepower they can muster to fight their way across the war-torn country and shepherd the woman to safety.

    Corporal Evan Albright joined the elite Marine Corps Security Guards to save the world and see some action-not necessarily in that order. But his first assignment, protecting a U. S. Embassy in a seemingly safe Middle Eastern capitol, relegates his unit to wrangling "gate groupies" protesting outside the compound and honing their marksmanship by playing video games. So Albright and his team are caught off guard when well-armed and well-trained militants launch a surprise attack aimed at killing an informant in the embassy. Heavily out-gunned, they will have to muster all the courage and fire power they can as their once routine assignment spirals into all-out war.
