AFGHANISTAN: THE GENERAL'S WAR

Dir: Olly Lambert
United Kingdom / Afghanistan / 2007 / 60mins

With unprecedented access behind the scenes of NATO's war in Afghanistan, this documentary follows the commander-in-chief, General Richards, at the frontline of the 'War on Terror'.

His challenge is enormous and the stakes are high. NATO must not just defeat the Taleban militarily: it must also win the battle for the hearts and minds of the Afghan people. We travel though wild and dangerous territory with Canadian and US troops as they try to implement the General's orders to win over the Afghans. Sometimes hilarious, occasionally tragic, this is an unexpected real-life insight into the lives of frontline soldiers reminiscent of MASH and Catch-22.
