Check out this amazing series of videos (found via Khyberwatch) of British troops helping the ANA/ANP take Garmsir (in Helmand) from the Taliban in 2006. If you’re only going to watch one, make sure you watch the third one. I don’t mean to give the plot away, but basically after spending 8 days taking back the deserted village from the Taliban, they get no reinforcements and everyone ends up leaving which, I think, reflects the weird and indecisive approach that the British army took to Helmand from 2006 – 2007.
