With the US Marines in Helmand Province

Ever wondered what life is like as a combat soldier in Afghanistan? The New York Times has published a slideshow and audio commentary by photographer and journalist Peter von Agtmael. His images and the sounds accompanying the photos capture the heat, fatigue, and terror of a foot patrol where hostile eyes and potential ambushers are everywhere.

You can watch the slideshow and here the commentary here.
