Heroes of Hell’s Highway: In Afghanistan, one of the most important and dangerous jobs for the army is the clearance of roadside bombs. Since the war began, over 1,000 American soldiers have been killed by these deadly bombs, so specially trained soldiers are sent into battle to clear them so that the rest of the military and civilians can stay safe on the roads. Heroes of Hell’s Highway follows two platoons as they use the world’s toughest vehicles to take out the bombs and take the hit themselves, so other soldiers don’t have to.
