Straight from the front lines in Iraq, The War Tapes is the first war movie filmed by soldiers themselves. This is Operation Iraqi Freedom as filmed by Sergeant Steve Pink, Sergeant Zack Bazzi and Specialist Mike Moriarty. Steve is a wisecracking carpenter who aspires to be a writer. Zack is a Lebanese-American university student who loves to travel and is fluent in Arabic. Mike is a father who seeks honor and redemption. Each leaves a woman behind - a girlfriend, a mother and a wife. Through their candid footage, these men open their hearts and take as on an unforgetable journey, capturing camaraderie and humor along with the brutal and terrifying experiences they face.
