IndieWire - Steve Greene Nov 7, For the most part, The Long Road Home would rather stick to stock scenes and manipulative sympathy-seeking that add up to "support the troops" messaging than tell messily human stories. Thus the miniseries is the latest pop-culture military production to fail to understand that you can powerfully do both.
Eight hours, frankly, stretches the story in a way that creates uneven patches.
Although it allows more time to develop characters and their histories -- including flashbacks before their deployment, and jumping ahead beyond it -- those arcs perhaps cast too wide a net, diluting the powerful moments by creating more space to drift into melodrama. More Critic reviews.

Heroes of the Long Road Home
Martha Raddatz is no stranger to war. The chief global affairs correspondent for ABC News and best-selling author has reported from conflict zones in Bosnia, Afghanistan, and Iraq. It was the first time I had seen soldiers cry, but it was the first time they had been in combat. This great tale of humanity and extraordinary courage galvanized Raddatz to write a best-selling book, The Long Road Home, which will soon be seen in its small-screen adaption on National Geographic, beginning November 7.
Adapting such a remarkable story, however, proved to be a challenge. With a cast including such talents as Kate Bosworth, Jason Ritter, Jeremy Sisto, and Michael Kelly, The Long Road Home tells its extraordinary story by not only recounting the dramatic urgency of the battle and rescue mission, but also by honing in on an individual soldier with each episode, painting an unexpectedly intimate, detailed character pastiche.
TV Review: ‘The Long Road Home’ on National Geographic
Military post, Fort Hood, Killeen, Texas. This profound level of authenticity is a hallmark of the series and one Raddatz is thrilled to be able to share with audiences. From putting the actors through weeks of pre-filming boot camp with former active-military personnel to check-ins with on-set tech consultants for direction on every nuance, from the proper closure of the Velcro on the flak jackets to the correct application the chinstraps on the helmets.
Perhaps one of the most remarkable elements of the production, and one National Geographic was committed to creating in the most intricate detail, was the set—the largest back lot ever constructed in North America.
