In one of the most stunning documentaries to have come out of Afghanistan, film-makers Sebastian Junger and Tim Hetherington's dig in for a year with the US Army's Second Platoon in Korengal - one of the barren country's most strategically crucial valleys. A surreal combination of back-breaking graft, deadly firefights, and camaraderie is revealed as the soldiers painfully push the Taliban back. It's The Hurt Locker... but for real.
