Army in Afghanistan

A peace effort in a never-ending war

Italian troops in Afghanistan amount to almost four thousand. They are basically located in the western and south-western part of the country, and man strongholds such as Bala Murghab, the Zirko Valley and Bala Baluk, in the heart of Taliban land.
They work hard to put into practice the new counterinsurgency doctrine. But, on the tenth anniversary of the beginning of the war, they have to work just as hard to defend themselves.
