First Platoon: The U.S. Marines in Snow Country
 

To become a United States Marine, you must learn to fight in four different extreme weather conditions. One of them is the extreme cold - with tons of snow. There are few better places to practice fighting in snow conditions than north of the Arctic circle.

This PBS primetime special follows a platoon of Marines on an exercise in North Norway. It digs into the snow, and it digs into the characters of these extraordinary men. It shows them engaged in practice combat with the famous White Death Ski Troops of Norway. It is extremely detailed and reveals many techniques of how Marines prepare and fight under extreme stress.
