Chain of Command Overview (2018)


An intimate portrait of the war against violent extremism and the men and women devoting their lives to it. Records the fight against radical threats all over the world as it unfolds over one full year.


Chain of Command is an intimate portrait of what has been dubbed “the war of this generation” — the US military’s mission to combat violent extremism around the world – and the men and women devoting their lives to it.

Filmed over 18 months, the eight-part documentary allows viewers unprecedented access inside the Pentagon to see how decisions made there have a direct impact on service members fighting on the front lines to protect Americans and US allies from radicalised extremists.

The series also includes a rare on-camera sit-down with General Joseph Dunford Jr., the then chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
