Afghanistan: Inside Australia’s War (2016): S01E02 – Hearts and Minds


Introduction

Australian soldiers, in their own words and using never-before-seen helmet camera footage, recount the fighting, the reasons and legacy of the Afghanistan war.

Outline

This episode charts Australia’s efforts alongside Dutch forces to secure the Afghan province of Uruzgan and support the new, and increasingly corrupt, government of Hamid Karzai by building hospitals, roads, schools and police stations. The moral complexities of war hit home most profoundly when Australian soldiers face charges of manslaughter in the wake of accidental civilian death during combat.
