May 2011, Afghanistan: Camp Bastion is under attack, the Sun's Defence Editor is about to catch the wrong helicopter, and a famous TV war reporter is missing half his kit and wants his trainers back. Amid the chaos, Christian Hill is preparing to lead his Combat Camera Team on the British Army's first big operation of the Helmand summer, inching through the IED-riddled fields of the notorious Green Zone. A captain in the Media Operations Group, his job is to promote the war to the British media - and make it look like things are under control and getting better...

The author's proceeds from the sale of each copy of Combat Camera will go to Combat Stress, the Veterans Mental Health Charity.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. May 2011, Afghanistan: Camp Bastion is under attack, the Sun's Defence Editor is about to catch the wrong helicopter, and a famous TV war reporter is missing half his kit and wants his trainers back. Amid the chaos, Christian Hill is preparing to lead his Combat Camera Team on the British Army's first big operation of the Helmand summer, inching through the IED-riddled fields of the notorious Green Zone, very probably getting shot at. A captain in the Media Operations Group, his job is to promote the war to the British media - and make it look like things are under control and getting better.Funny, offbeat, shocking and affectionate, Combat Camera offers a unique insight into the military's media operations in Afghanistan. As coalition troops return home after years of fighting, it will appeal to anyone who wants to know whether our campaign against the Taliban has really been worth the effort.
