"In making Left for Dead, we wanted to tell the heroic story of a young man's courage and character," explained Mark Bussler, the director. "At an age where today's young men are still in school, this man formed a military unit and fought in many of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War". Battle sequences were recreated from Oscar Jackson's diary entries in his book, "The Colonel's Diary". One powerful scene in the production occurs when Jackson describes in his own words, "Looking for the dead on the battlefield was similar to hunting for strawberries in a meadow." Vivid images like these are brought to life throughout the production. Another powerful scene is one in which Jackson is nearly killed by a bullet in the face, which penetrates well into his skull. In this scene Jackson is leading his troops forward, as he had already done quite frequently. Suddenly, he is shot in the face by a small caliber weapon. Stunned, he drops his weapon and stumbles backward. He puts his hands to his face attempting to hold back a horrible gush of blood.. He falls to the ground, unconscious. Later, he is found by other soldiers and tossed on a pile of dead bodies, giving rise to the film's title, "Left for Dead." - Publisher's List Price = $19.95 each - Our Price - $17.95
