For up to $600 a day, private security contractors in Iraq's war zone put their lives on the line to protect V.I.P.s and to transport critical supplies. Now, National Geographic travels alongside three teams on missions in the "kill zone" to reveal street rules of defense, tools for surviving ambushes and preparedness for the unexpected. Learn how specially designed vehicle armor and customized weapons help these mercenaries survive being targeted by insurgents.

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ
Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD Exclusives Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.
NOTE: The NG DVD Exclusives titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
