I read the book when it came out. We watched the film this year. I favor the book. There is one scene in film that I don’t recall in the book. Luttrell and Murphy are having their final conversation. Both have been shot multiple times and they are assuring each other that they “Are always in the fight”. Now think about this for a second. You have been shot with 7.62 rounds more than once. Have frag wounds from mortar and RPG’s and you are still ready to fight. Same as in BUD/S you never give in. You sit in the cold water with your swim buddy, your boat team all the time being offered hot chocolate and a warm blanket to quit.
