In 1916, Mexican bandit Pancho Villa raided the southwestern
border town of Columbus, New Mexico. Three hundred American soldiers fought
four hundred attackers in a battle that ended with one of the last cavalry
charges in US history. Outraged, Congress ordered the Army to invade Mexico in
pursuit of Villa. For the first time, trucks and airplanes accompanied the
cavalry into combat, practicing for America’s entry into World War I.
Influenced by Sam Peckinpah, Rambo-creator David Morrell
dramatizes this epic era in American history through the eyes of a civilian
scout old enough to have been in the Civil War, the Indian wars, Cuba, and the
Philippines. Knowing his ways are finished, he teaches a young recruit about
the past, at a cost he never expected to pay. Download and start listening now!
