Casualties of War is a 1989 drama directed by Brian De Palma, with a screenplay by David Rabe, based on the actual events on Hill 192 in 1966 during the Vietnam War. The screenplay was based on a New Yorker article by Daniel Lang. This, in turn, was inspired by a true case which illustrated the dehumanizing aspects of the Vietnam experience. Michael J. Fox plays Eriksson, a member of an American squadron stationed in the deepest jungles of Southeast Asia. Sean Penn co-stars as Meserve, the squadron sergeant, who vows revenge after his best friend is killed.
