    As a British muslim I, and I would hope, the majority of British Muslims support our troops 100%. They are much more proffesional than the Americans who seem to be more" trigger happy". As opposed to the politics which seems to be corrupt for either money or power. I do hope they sort this out quickly by talking and saving lives.

    What a series, I'm wishing away my weekend until it's Monday night and I can watch the next one. Well done Chris Terrill for being out there on the front line with the Royals to make this. My brother is in Afghanistan on his 4th stint but I had no real idea what the place was like till I watched this. I have never been more gripped by anything on TV. I really worry about the IEDs not just for our men, women and dogs but also for all the little children in the fields and villages, if they get blown up they're not going to get any pain relief or treatment in that medieval society, they have nothing. Anyway, I hope everyone gets back OK and I desperately hope that those who were injured recover. I must say that Taff is my absolute favourite of the series, he's great, he leads by example, engages with the locals brilliantly, and makes motivational speeches worthy of a world leader! Who wouldn't want to be on his side? All the best to everyone out there.

    Watching this whole series so far has been just amazing and ever since i joined my local air cadets I have heard so many amazing stories from RAF personel, Infantry personel and NAVY personel. This is just confirming everything I've heard. I can't wait till I can get out there myself to do my duty and to fight a war so someone else doesn't have to fight it for me. Last but not least I hope Cpl Vicey and the RAF Police dog handler get to good health.

    Great series Chris, this programme captures the essence of the great work our guys are doing, so much dedication and tragic loss. There is so little coverage in the media of what is going on there. BBC is hopeless, this series is really to the point. Please more of it.

    steveb Think it wuld be better not to see more action, it means the boys r staying safe and not getting into conflict, granted it might not be as good viewing, but wanting more action from a programme fo this nature with real life consequences is pretty shallow in my opinion

    Well what can I say? Well done 5 well done Chris and well done all Royals plus much respect to all of our brothers and sisters in arms. As an ex 42 Cdo veteran of an 82 vintage you have held the torch aloft and run the same race, as all who went before, it is always better to run through a tape than to walk up to the finish line no matter how hard the journey and god knows we have had some. So as an ex- royal with a son in the corps I am happy to hand on the torch to the right people who work hard and are amongst the best this country has to give. Please don’t waste them.

    Having followed the series right from the start, i can honestly say it has been a real privilege to be able to watch the Royal Marines in action in Afghanistan. Well done Chris Terrill on a superb show. I was saddened to hear of Paul Vice's injuries, the way the camera just held that moment right at the end before Chris Terrill actually spoke, i feared the worse, it was heartbreaking. Fortunately, if i can use that word, Paul has survived and is on the mend, so if you ever get to read these things Paul. God bless and best wishes to a true warrior.
