Over 100 British troops will never return from Iraq, having perished in action. But what of those who arrive home alive but injured? This emotive documentary captures the pain and suffering of three men who served for Queen and country. Colour sergeant Albert was a victim of "friendly fire", as was Daniel, whose experiences as a lance corporal in the war zone led to countless operations. Richard, a sergeant major, felt isolated and totally unprepared. Why are these voices seldom heard when the rights and wrongs of the Iraq war are fought over?
