Former Marine Miles Lagoze hopes his film "Combat Obscura" will alter the "sanitized and sanctified view of the military".
French Army Combat in Afghanistan
Some good helmet cam footage of the French Army in Afghanistan that is part of a promotion for an upcoming book. -- "Ten years since the French army is engaged in Afghanistan and yet the French know very little about the lives of 40,000 men who fought or served in Afghanistan. Who are they? Returns one less affected by modern warfare when you're a professional? Nicolas Mingasson was the only reporter allowed by the French army for a year to share the life of a combat unit, including operations in Kapisa, one of the most dangerous regions of Afghanistan. He returns this unique experience in a book illustrated with many photos, accompanied by testimonies of soldiers to support us and understand, inside, issues and reality of the distant war, the lives of soldiers, their training, their methods combat, their concerns also. This work was financially supported by the GMPA for its realization."
