TEACHER'S GUIDE

COMBAT FILMS AND RESEARCH opens the Beyond the Border series with Fog and Friction, a timely program that introduces viewers to the fundamental concepts of fog and friction in military philosophy, illustrated with exclusive footage of Operation Anaconda and the Invasion of Baghdad. Insightful interviews with military thinkers and soldiers fresh from the battlefield offer a unique perspective on the unpredictable nature of combat.

In a time when flashy technology and limited media coverage of actual casualties make war seem like a clean, precise operation, Fog and Friction offers a refreshingly realistic look at the unchanging nature of combat. Used in conjunction with this teacher's guide, Fog and Friction can help students to learn about the history of US military activities and the country's evolution to today's casualty-averse culture, and to discuss the implications of these realities on policy and the people who make it.
