Synopsis

This series offers an unflinching look at the "tours of duty" of several members of a platoon during the Vietnam War. Death is inevitable in war, and major characters do die. The protagonists face the Viet Cong, social disapproval, and sometimes themselves over the course of the series.

Trivia

Inspired by the success of Platoon (1986) a year earlier.

In the episode "Soldiers", when Taylor, Percell and Ruiz are at the tattoo parlor, Ruiz suggested having a tattoo on his arm with the phrase "Born To Kill" which featured on a helmet in Full Metal Jacket (1987)
