Seven soldiers. Seven military specialties. Seven stories.

What was it like to serve in the combat mission in Afghanistan? Journalists reports from 2006 to 2011 could only give brief glimpses of the reality on the ground for Canadian soldiers.

The operation became known as the combat mission as Canadian battle groups engaged in a deadly multi-year war of counter-insurgency in Kandahar province. Each of the seven soldiers experiences covered inCombat Mission Kandaharhighlights a facet of one of Canadas longest, most complicated, and challenging operations.
