12 Strong is a new movie based on the true story of the first special operations soldiers to conduct combat operations in Afghanistan after September 11, 2001 attacks, and is based on the book 12 Strong: The Declassified True Story of the Horse Soldiers.

Jerry Bruckheimer movie with a good cast so I have high hopes for this movie. It has a release date of January 19.

I just finished listening to an interview with two of the special operations soldiers that were on this mission and they were both impressed and somewhat in awe of just how accurate this movie was to the mission they were a part of. I also found it interesting that one of them pointed out the similarity this mission had to the Doolittle Raider mission of WW II.
