First Contact
Capt. Ben Middendorf and the men of Golf Company, 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines, enter the most dangerous place in Afghanistan with two objectives: disrupt and destroy the Taliban, without losing a man.


Booby Traps & Poppy Fields
Golf Company must reach and clear a drug baron’s compound, and under constant fire they have an even grimmer threat looming in the back of their minds: IEDs.


Fighting Ghosts
Golf Company continues their relentless surge, encountering civilians for the first time, and hunting for the enemy’s command center.


Trapped by the Taliban
Fourteen days into Golf Company’s mission, Capt. Middendorf has a bead on a Taliban command and control center. And with Taliban forces reeling under his company’s attack, he hopes to land a telling blow before mission’s end.


Homeward Bound
On their last mission before their scheduled return home, Golf Company face one last hurdle while raiding a narcotics processing site: they are separated, and under fire.
