Watched this last night and was wondering how accurate the story was.  I know Hollywood took liberties but as far as the core story goes, is this pretty much what happened?  I did enjoy the film.  I did find a casting choice kinda strange when they showed the team picture at the end however.  Unless, lol, my eyes are just wonky.

Nothing in "12 Strong" resembles any events that occurred in 2001-2002 in Afghanistan.

Yeah, funny seeing them only get support from the B-52s...  when in reality 90% of what they got was USN F-18 / F-14s...

It's Hollywood - they take a true story and drain it to about 1-3% truth, which usually accounts for some of the ppls names.

I read that prior to posting this question.   Made it sound like the story was more or less true but not some details.

Get the book that the movie was based on.
