Nat Geo Announces Military Shows 'Battleground Afganistan' and 'EyeWitness War'

National Geographic Channel announced the two new war docuseries, "Battleground Afganistan" and "EyeWitness War," following in the bootprints of its successful war series "Inside Combat Rescue."

"Battleground Afghanistan" follows the men of the Golf Company, 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines, as they attempt to locate, disrupt and destroy the Taliban.

"EyeWitness War" follows the men and women of the Army, Navy, Drug Enforcement Administration, Coast Guard and other forces as they deal with battles, drug trafficking and explosives.

"EyeWitness War and Battleground Afghanistan highlight the dangerous missions and perils of war through the eyes of our brave American service members as the fighting is happening," said Michael Cascio, Nat Geo executive vice president of programming. "The series are both compelling and frightfully honest. Together with 'Inside Combat Rescue,' I am proud that our network is telling the stories of these heroes, and using their own words."
