Lone Survivor, released in 2014, details Operation Red Wings that occurred in 2005 in Afghanistan. During the battle, four United States Navy SEAL’s found themselves under attack from hundreds of Taliban fighters in the Afghan mountains. The SEAL’s were originally performing a reconnaissance mission, but were spotted by a group of Afghan goat herders. The SEAL’s decided to let the herders go and attempted to escape, but were discovered and overwhelmed by a Taliban force that potentially numbered as highly as two hundred and fifty men. Only one SEAL, Marcus Luttrell, survived the ensuing firefight despite being mortally wounded, and was taken in by an Afghan village who kept him safe from the Taliban until he was rescued later.
