This acclaimed documentary series gives a soldier's eye view of the conflict in Afghanistan. It's the most
eye-opening, startling and moving account of the war there's ever been.
No modern conflict has been recorded like the war in Afghanistan. Young soldiers took their cameras
to the front line and filmed the war as only they could see it. Now the M.O.D. and the soldiers have
released this footage to help tell their extraordinary stories.
In these films we relive the stories of a largely teenage platoon from the Royal Anglian Regiment experiencing
their first taste of war; a platoon from the Grenadier Guards dealing with terrifying Improvised Explosive Devices
(IEDs) and the 2nd Battalion Princess of Wales Regiment, fighting under new rules to protect civilians whilst
struggling to train the Afghan National Police. We witness the exhilaration, terror and tragedy of modern
warfare as well as the bravery and professionalism of those on the front line.
