Before 9/11, the rugby team at West Point learned to bond on a sports field. Shortly after 9/11, those 15 young men became leaders in war.
Filled with drama, tragedy, and personal transformations, this is the story of a unique brotherhood. It is a story of American rugby and a story of the U. S. Army created through intimate portraits of men shaped by West Point’s “Duty, Honor, Country.”
Listen to Max's interview with Martin Pengelly, Journalist, and Author of BROTHERHOOD: When West Point Rugby Went to War. Martin, a former rugby player himself, talks about his extraordinary access to tell this story of a brutal sport and even more brutal warfare.
