From the box:
The first casualty of war is innocence.
Seen through the eyes of college drop-out, Chris Taylor (Charlie Sheen), the war is a real nightmare — a private hell of fears from outside and in — with enemies on both sides of the line. His platoon’s allegiance is split between leaders Sergeant Barnes and Sergeant Elias portrayed by Tom Berenger and Wilem Dafoe in their powerful Oscar-nominated performances. Barnes is a scar-faced, gung-ho fanatic bent on destroying the elusive Viet Cong. Elias is a different type of soldier — he has lost faith in the war, but not in man. Friction between the two sergeants leads to a second war, in every way as deadly as the one being waged against the enemy.
