Abstract:

In 1979 the Soviet army entered Afghanistan to fight against the Islamic mujahideen in the Afghan civil war. But even after ten long years, massive Soviet firepower failed to break their resistance. Afghanistan has a proud legacy of resisting foreign invaders - with the arrival of NATO forces, will history repeat itself? Filmmaker Jeff B. Harmon and cameraman Alexander Lindsay dodged bullets and risked kidnap to create this definitive look at the Soviet war in Afghanistan, raising powerful questions about the subsequent conflict there.
