Combat Mission Kandahar
The Canadian Experience in Afghanistan
Seven soldiers. Seven military specialties. Seven stories.
What was it like to serve in the combat mission in Afghanistan? Journalists’ reports from 2006 to 2011 could only give brief glimpses of the reality on the ground for Canadian soldiers. This book reveals the full story of what happened to seven soldiers throughout their deployment in Operation ATHENA, Phase 2. The operation became known as “the combat mission” as Canadian battle groups engaged in a deadly multi-year war of counter-insurgency in Kandahar province. Each of the seven soldier’s experiences covered in Combat Mission Kandahar highlights a facet of one of Canada’s longest, most complicated, and challenging operations.
