No Man Left Behind details the gruesome survival stories of war heroes and special agents from past battles and missions.

The soldiers’ stories are enough to send chills up your spine. As they retell their experiences, it is clear how much the battle affected the individuals. The men came close to death, and watched many of their friends die horrible deaths in battle.

As one of the soldiers put it,Not a day goes by where at some point I don’t think about something in the streets of Mogadishu.

The soldiers gained a new appreciation for their comrades, forming an unbreakable bond that still keeps them close to this day. In the face of such adversity, the soldiers gain a new appreciation for life, love and friendship. [01]
