[edit] Information

-- Also aired as "Inside the Green Berets" -- In a remote outpost in south-central Afghanistan, 24 Americans work to 'pacify' a hostile river valley the size of Rhode Island. They are Green Berets: U.S. Army Special Forces charged with battling the Taliban and Al Qaeda while winning the hearts and minds of locals who often see the Americans as simply the latest of a string of invaders dating back centuries. The troops at the heart of the harrowing special National Geographic: Green Berets Under Fire are far from standard issue military men. As the U.S. soldiers assigned to a outpost in southern Afghanistan christened Firebase Cobra, and required to protect Afghani domestics from the brutal minions of the Taliban, these Berets walk a hair-thin line of risk between life and death, between sanctity and martyrdom. Following 9/11, the Pentagon normally limits media embeds with Navy SEALs and Green Berets to 48-hours. The Hoggard team was given 10 days in the combat zone to chronicle the lives of these war-hardened Special Force troopers. But in the dead of night, on a distant Afghan ridge, the trip is cut brutally short, leaving 8 Green Berets and two of our film crew dead or wounded in the worst mass casualty event to date for Special Forces in Afghanistan. Green Berets Under Fire presents the footage shot during that two day span, and thus creates an intense and uncompromising glimpse at the lives of the soldiers - the day-to-day risks they traverse, and the heroism they wield, making this a nerve-wracking yet fascinating look at the duties of these fearless soldiers. With intimate firsthand accounts, National Geographic provides a rare, up-close look at the sacrifices, challenges and deadly risks that American soldiers face on the front lines every day during war. Director/Writer Steven Hoggard ; Produced by Hoggard Films for National Geographic Channel
