"Chain of Command" on Nat Geo

Has anyone seen this? I was flipping through and caught most of the third episode tonight. It focused primarily on the battle for Mosul. It had segments from the Pentagon and JCS all the way down to a company level CP of the 101st in Mosul.

Like most Nat Geo documentaries, it was pretty well done and the photography was excellent.

But to be honest, I found it a bit depressing that we are still fighting in that shithole after all these years.

I watched the first two episodes last night and enjoyed them. I liked the fact that they didn't hide from the mistakes they have made while showing their victories and showing how they are being used to diminish ISIS's footprint. I'll continue to watch the series.

Tonights episode is pretty good. They are spending a good deal of time on CSM Troxell.

Even showed a little work involving CA, ICE, and mentioned SWCC's work in Columbia.
