Frontline is awesome, but very once in a while it's so incredible I can't take it!
Check out Obama's War.
Amazing images and interviews give an intimate view of combat life along with a concise summery of the war's progress and insane dynamics. I learned more from this video than months of newsprint and radio. The camera work is pretty stunning and also mind boggling considering that much of it was shot under direct gunfire and the occasional IED!
It's an hour long, but even if your not going to catch the whole thing I highly recommend the first 15 minutes.
