In this documentary, we hear directly form soldiers serving in the Royal 22e Régiment--all of them francophone. Members of the regiment (known in English as "Van Doos") were filmed in the field in March 2011, during their deployment to Afghanistan. They speak with ease and a rare candour about themselves and their work, whether out on patrol or performing their duties at the base. The film's images and interviews bring home the complexity of the issues on the ground ans shed light on the little-understood experiences of the men and women who served in Afghanistan.
Ce documentaire donne directement la parole aux militaires du Royal 22e Régiment – tous francophones. Surnommés Van Doos par les anglophones, ils ont été filmés alors qu'ils étaient en Afghanistan, en mars 2011. Avec une sincérité et un franc-parler peu communs, ils se confient simplement, et parlent d'eux et de leur travail, entre une mission de patrouille et les activités sur la base militaire. Les images et les propos recueillis transmettent toute l'importance et la complexité des enjeux sur le terrain, et témoignent d'une réalité méconnue.

Very honest and informative. Discusses what the Russians left behind in Afghanistan, the Vandoos avoiding patterns, speaking French to plan their missions so the interpreters can't understand, a soldier who was injured but returned to combat, and the ramp ceremony for Yannick Scherrer.
