Craig has joined the army to get away from football, but somehow the game has followed him all the way to Basra. Has he got what it takes to be a hero?
In the second episode, life on the army base in Basra is closing down - they'd all rather be in Afghanistan.
In the third episode, the army boys take a holiday from frontline service in Afghanistan.
