What can be described as a companion to Sebastian Junger's War, Tim Hetherington accompanied Junger as photographer on his trips to Korengal. Hetherington's photographs are fascinating and compelling, we are reminded that these are soldiers, festoned with kit and weapons, in dugouts and bunkers but also that they are 18 & 19 year olds. Take them out of their military environment and they would be like any other teenagers and twentysomethings, obsessed with girls, cars, video games. These pictures eloquently convey that it is the young who pay the ultimate price in war.
