WIN! FRONTLINE: Mosul on DVD!
Described by some military commanders as the deadliest urban combat since World War II, the battle to drive ISIS out of Mosul as the terror group held civilians captive there was brutal and grueling.
Shot over the course of the entire nine-month fight, this vivid documentary follows the experiences of four young soldiers in a team of Iraqi Special Forces tasked with leading the battle.
Visceral footage of the fighting is interwoven with intimate and searching interviews with the young soldiers.
Full of hope at the beginning of the campaign, the reality of fighting an elusive and vicious enemy in a city full of trapped civilians ultimately takes its toll: By the end of filming, one of the four soldiers is dead. And for the surviving soldiers, haunted by what they have seen and done, the war goes on.
Mosul is a stunning look at the high cost of the Iraqi Armys victory over ISIS in the city, large parts of which have been destroyed, with hundreds of thousands of civilians still displaced.
If you would like to win a copy of this riveting new DVD, just answer this easy question about Mosul: From its original site on the western bank of the Tigris River, the modern city expanded to the eastern bank and now encircles the ruins of which ancient Assyrian city?
