Southern Afghanistan was slipping away. That was clear to then-Captain Rusty Bradley as he began his third tour of duty there in 2006. The Taliban and their allies were infiltrating everywhere, poised to reclaim Kandahar Province, their strategically vital onetime capital. To stop them, the NATO coalition launched Operation Medusa, the largest offensive in its history. The battlefield was the Panjwayi Valley, a densely packed warren of walled compounds that doubled neatly as enemy bunkers.

Really makes you feel like you are there. Makes you realise how much those in uniform sacrifice for their country. It was also fascinating to hear how the special forces worked together with their Afghan Army comrades and to see the mutual respect between the two.
