In January 2009 it was a patch of lawless Afghan desert, riddled with Taliban fighters. Today, Camp Leatherneck is home to more than 7,000 troops.
National Geographic goes inside the epicenter of the war in Afghanistan to meet the men and women who live and work in the camp. Learn how violence, boredom, excessive heat, separation from family and cultural differences affect the mind-set of the warriors. With unprecedented access, National Geographic chronicles daily life at Camp Leatherneck and the challenges and danger that come with living in an active war zone.
Bonus Program: Afghanistan: In The Line of Fire.
