UK troops on life and death on the Afghan front line
A series of recordings has been released by the Ministry of Defence which gives a unique insight into the lives of British soldiers in Afghanistan.
The material was filmed by soldiers themselves, using special helmet cameras and forms the basis of a three-part BBC documentary entitled Our War.
Caroline Wyatt reports.
Viewers in the UK can watch the first part of 'Our War' on BBC Three, 2100 BST, Tuesday 7 June, and on BBC iPlayer after broadcast
