This is incredible: it transports you to the frontlines (if that term even applies anymore) and colors in the things we haven’t been hearing or seeing about Afghanistan.  It’s far from being just caves and disorganized hostiles, by any stretch of the imagination.  As one of the soldiers says in the audio track, “It was a pretty complex ambush on their part.”  The troops are inspiring.  The terrain is brutal.  It also happens to be oddly beautiful.
