[edit] Information

In Afghanistan, in 2006, a small Band of Brothers called Easy Company fought one of the most intense and least talked about battles in British military history. This Secret History documentary reveals for the first time how a company of British soldiers came under siege for more than 50 days in a remote desert town in Afghanistan. Trapped in a small compound, outgunned, outnumbered, and at the mercy of the Taliban, the fight to hold Musa Quala became one of the most important last stands in British history - a quarter of all the ammunition used by the British Army in Helmand for the whole of 2006 was fired in less than two months. For the first time, surviving ex-soldiers tell their story and share the footage they captured.
