This week the documentary Restrepo received an Oscar nomination for best documentary feature.

The doc follows a platoon of U.S. soldiers deployed to Afghanistan. (It was co-directed by Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger, author of The Perfect Storm.)

As Pop reader Tim T. points out, the National Geographic Channel will air Restrepo Feb. 2 at 8 p.m. ET.

“If you haven’t seen this documentary, here’s a chance,” he says. “It’s very powerful; you will never feel the same way about war after seeing it.”
