Army: Behind the New Frontlines

Filmed over 18 months, this series goes into the heart of the British army. Through the eyes of the rank and file and the leaders, it shows the challenges of fighting wars, when we are not at war. In this episode, the army returns to Iraq, where they have a bloody history. 179 British soldiers were killed here between 2003 and 2011. Now they are helping the Iraqis defeat the so-called Islamic State. As the battle for Mosul begins, the series is with the regiments operating behind the frontlines. Can the army face off their enemies, find lasting peace and avoid being drawn into costly new wars?
