The atmosphere is intense and the expectations high in this six-part documentary series which follows - for the first time ever - Canadian infantry soldiers as they undergo a technologically advanced, realistic training regimen to prepare for combat. Granted unprecedented access, the cameras go directly to the heart of modern warfare by following a platoon of 40 men and women from 1 Platoon, Mike Company, 3rd Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment from the time they commence their training until they are declared "battle-ready." Our film crew is then embedded with the platoon "outside the wire" in Afghanistan where the soldiers' skills are put to the ultimate test when they encounter insurgents for the first time.
