In February, US Marines launched the biggest operation since the start of the war in Afghanistan: Operation Mushtaraq. Bravo’s Deadly Mission covers hour-by-hour the entire operation to liberate the strategically vital town of Marjah in February 2010 and contains some of the most intense fighting footage ever caught on camera. Filmed under extremely dangerous circumstances and in the toughest conditions imaginable, this Dispatches special is an extraordinary human story and an unflinching portrayal of war at first hand. Bravo’s Deadly Mission shows just how dangerous and difficult the situation in southern Afghanistan has become, and how hard it will be to turn around.
