FOX­TEL’S rep­u­ta­tion for com­mis­sion­ing bold, wa­ter­cooler con­tent con­tin­ues with this out­stand­ing new drama se­ries, which will turn au­di­ence at­ten­tion to the is­sues fac­ing our mod­ern mil­i­tary. The six episodes have been crafted largely from the pen of Blake Aysh­ford ( who acted as both pro­ducer, writer and showrun­ner, and drew on his fam­ily ex­pe­ri­ence, as the son of an air force of­fi­cer. That un­der­stand­ing of the silent wars be­ing waged on the home­front, as well as the toll mod­ern war­fare is hav­ing on our ser­vice men and women brings fresh per­spec­tive and an au­then­tic­ity to this se­ries, more of­ten lost in the rush to sim­plify or glam­or­ise war. This is ugly at times, and vi­o­lent, as well as heart­break­ing and in­tense, with the heroic ef­forts of mil­i­tary moth­ers es­pe­cially fi­nally ac­knowl­edged. Not one to be missed.
