Overview

This box set actually constitutes a two-pack, featuring a pair of thematically-related documentaries. It opens with The War in Afghanistan, billed as the most comprehensive and up-to-date chronicle of the post-9/11 'War on Terror.' This 2010 documentary examines the roots of the Afghanistan and Iraqi wars, beginning with the Islamic Revolution of the late 1970s, and moving through various pivotal Middle Eastern events that led up to the September 11th attacks, the rise of the Taliban armies in Afghanistan and America's decision to wage war against Al-Qaeda.

The second half of the box set, a documentary film titled America's Secret Weapons - Desert Storm and Beyond, reviews some of the high-precision weaponry developed as a direct result of military activities in Operation Desert Storm. The program ventures inside of a top-secret weapons testing facility in China Lake, California, where military experts speak candidly about the cutting edge work being done with F-18s, Harrier Jets, EA-6 Prowlers, and much more .
