Fighting Passions

Documentary featuring interviews with soldiers on the act that defines them: killing.

For civilians, it is a crime. For soldiers, it is a job. Soldiers who have done it don't usually talk about it, but five former British infantrymen recall the reality of combat in compelling and candid detail. Through powerful personal testimonies, the programme traces the journeys of these men from young recruits, through training and frontline combat, to where killing places them today.
