In 2011, photographer Giles Duley was embedded with the U.S. Army in Afghanistan, when he stepped on an improvised explosive device. As a result, he lost the lower part of his left arm and walks with prosthetic legs. Here, we follow Duley as he heads to Kabul to photograph civilians who are living with similar injuries. Raw footage from Duley’s own rescue is part of the program, which also introduces us to the Medevac team that saved him; his girlfriend, whom he met just before the life-changing assignment; and others who are “walking wounded” but attempting to heal.
