Reviews

Perhaps the most dangerous job in the world is being a truck driver in war-torn Afghanistan.This extraordinary series uncovers the gritty reality of the heroic Road Warriors who must transport their explosive cargo on a range of specially designed, high tech, armoured trucks to the frontline. With amazing access to the British armed forces the Road Warriors tackle the most dangerous roads in the world: landmines, rocket attacks, suicide bombers, snipers, ambush or criminal gangs attempting to steal their load. The only certainty about each trip is the Taliban will be lying in wait for them somewhere. Road Warriors is an adrenalin-packed roller-coaster ride into the world of modern warfare.

“It’s good to sit down sometimes and have a laugh about how close we all were to death… at the time it’s not f***ing funny.” (Lance Corporal Lisa West)

Excellent. Looking at a group of service men and women who get less attention than front-line soldiers, logistics personnel, but are still very much on the front-line themselves. We see upfront the dangers they face, and get to know a number of soldiers during their tour-of-duty. A good collection of extras with additional footage. It takes no political stand for or against the conflict, just shows us what these brave men and women face in Afghanistan.

Very very brilliant first hand stories of a dirty "minor" war, made of sun, hot, sand, dust and ambushes. Warrior may be an exagerated definition for logystics personnel, but not in Afghanistan, where at any moment a suicide bomber or a IED may destroy the trucks loaded of vital equipment and food, water, ammunition and all the needs of the combat troops. Enjoy these DVD at a very bargain price.

Italian extended review.
Un prodotto interessantissimo che mostra un lato "minore" della guerra. Da sempre i riflettori sono puntati sui cambattenti di prima linea, ma carristi, parà e "operativi vari", soprattutto nei moderni scenari, potrebbero fare ben poco e per pochissimo tempo, se non avessero dietro una complessa ed efficientissima macchina logistica. Come diceva Patton "I miei uomini possono anche non mangiare, ma i miei carri hanno bisogno della benzina per muoversi". In Afghanistan, come in altri scenari passati (dal Vietnam alla campagna di Russia), i "logistici" devono affrontare non solo le problematiche intrinseche del proprio lavoro, ma devono attrezzarsi per difendere e proteggere se stessi e i rifornimenti trasportati fino alle basi avanzate.
Questo documentario combat racconta in presa diretta e molto realisticamente cosa voglia dire oggi, in Afghanistan, tra IED e natura ostile, rifornire le truppe sul campo. Se un domani vi capitasse di incontrare uno di questi "trasportatori di scatolette" dopo aver visto il DVD, NON lo guarderete certo con sufficienza .. anzi ...

We all know about the frontline troops, but most of us probably forget about support troops; the cooks, the medics, and of course the logistics units this DVD focusses on.

This follows a number of convoys ferrying food, water, ammo and other equipment across the deserts of Afghanistan, and shows - like many other British TV shows of the last few years - what being a soldier nowadays is really like. It's fascinating viewing, and well worth watching for anyone who's interested in the less combative side of war.

I received the DVD very quickly. The actual product was well described and lived up to expectations. It is a great insight to what role the Royal Logistic Corps do now. They have definitely changed perspectives.

Road Warriors in Afghanistan is an excellent documentary
and insight into the work of those members of the British
Army who operate the supplies life-line that keeps our
troops fed, watered and armed with all the equipment
required to keep them going in hostile territory.

On 2 discs, with 4 episodes originally shown on ITV,
plus 4 additional episodes titled The Extra Mile, we
follow these courageous men and women of the Royal
Logistics Corps, Mercian Regiment, REME, Royal Artillery
and others as they battle against desert conditions and
the Taliban to drive their trucks in unbelievably long
convoys to their destination facing terrifying odds.

Whilst not as much in the public eye, these soldiers
are as important as any of our frontline troops, who
could not function at all without the bravery and sheer
determination of this intrepid supplies team.

Filmed in Helmand Province, Afghanistan in 2009,
this is compulsive viewing for all those who admire
the courage of our military and wish to see how supply
and logistics are brought together.

2 DVD's 360 minutes viewing time.
With Subtitles.
Worth watching.
