Plot Synopsis

TAKING FIRE is a five-party documentary series that takes viewers onto the frontlines in Afghanistan with American soldiers using footage shot from helmet cams. This one-hour series follows a band of brothers deployed to defend one of the United States' farthest flung outposts at the gateway to one of the deadliest places on earth: the mouth of the Taliban-held Korengal Valley in Northeast Afghanistan. Told by the men who fought on the frontlines themselves and illustrated with real combat footage shot on helmet cameras and handy cams, this never-before-seen material takes viewers along for an experience not witnessed in news reports or traditional documentary portrayals of war. TAKING FIRE showcases the 101st Airborne Division, charting one year's deployment on one base in Afghanistan.
On Tuesday, October 11, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT, Discovery Channel premiered the season finale of TAKING FIRE. In the season ender, "The Long Road Home," the 101st prepares to leave Afghanistan. After a year in the Korangal the soldiers are changed men but six years and a reunion later promises some peace.
