Return to Death Valley. Series 2, episode 2.
Further stories of life on the frontline in Afghanistan, seen through films shot by the soldiers themselves. The men of C Company, 2nd Battalion the Mercian Regiment are getting used to life back in barracks and beginning to tell their stories of a tour far tougher than any of them expected. A timetable has been set for an end to British combat operations in Afghanistan, but two young officers led their platoons into an area of Helmand dubbed Death Valley to find a war that is far from over. While some areas are being handed over to Afghan forces as part of the process of transition, C Company's footage captures the reality of the fight against the Taliban in the Upper Gereshk Valley. During the tour they were blown up by IEDs, ambushed and shunned by a local population too scared to talk to them - until a civilian vehicle carrying three generations of one family was hit by an IED along a notorious stretch of Route 611 - a road C Company were there to protect.



The first of this series can be found in my channel as can the three from last years first series.
