The Fighting Season is an up-close, first-person account of the deadliest year in our nation's longest war. In March 2014, as the Taliban increased its attacks to derail the historic Afghan presidential elections, highly trained American soldiers were enlisted to ensure the democratic election process was upheld. Inspired by the brave men and women who serve our country, actor/director Ricky Schroder and a small film crew traveled to document their missions. The result is The Fighting Season, an unprecedented, in-depth look into the experiences of the U.S. Army in Afghanistan.
