Airs Thursday, April 20, 2017, at 7 p.m. Dawood Azami talks to the British, Russian, American and Afghan fighters and soldiers who fought in what some historians have called the Graveyard of Empires. From a U.S. general whose ancestor also governed in Afghanistan in the 19th century, to an infantryman caught up in a close quarter's fire fight with the Taliban, to a Mujahid fighter staking out a Soviet military convoy from the mountains, a portrait of Afghanistan through the eyes of fighters and soldiers who have fought there.
