Their mission is daunting. Fight terrorism, stop drug smugglers and intercept illegal entrants from the air, on the ground and at all ports of entry. The battle lines stretch for the thousands of miles, and sometimes all that stands between the combatants is a flimsy metal fence—or nothing at all.


National Geographic's critically acclaimed series Border Wars follows officers and agents of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and their critical battles at the most treacherous border crossings between the U.S. and Mexico. In Season Three, Border Wars goes even deeper inside the struggle as CBP fights an escalating drug-smuggling crisis fueled by big money, cartel rivalries and violence threatening to cross into our cities each day.


Episodes include: Murder on the Lake, Seize and Destroy, Cocaine Sting, Marijuana Airdrop and Drug Smuggling Grandma.


Not available for shipment outside the U.S. and Canada.

              This season was just another in the series of videos illustrating the difficult task of CBP in protection the US border from drugs and illegals. My only complaint about this video is a defect in disc one which has failed to be corrected up to now. I generously recieved one replacement from NG but defect still existed. The defect caused one scene to end abruptly prior to completion. I was only able to watch to complete scene by manipulation with my computer. This is unfortunate because the climax the seizure of cash is missing. Maybe this report will cause NG to take steps to correct the defect.

The risks have never been higher, with the violence of the Mexican drug wars a stone's throw from U.S. soil and criminals armed with increasingly sophisticated technology challenging the most rigorous countermeasures.
