The Canadian soldier at war
Crazy Eights is an intimate look at the life of the Canadian soldier at war in the dusty and dangerous region of southern Afghanistan. The Royal Canadian Regiment Charles Company Eight Platoon-The Crazy Eights-have suffered more than any platoon in the war, sustaining casualties in both Operation Medusa and a friendly fire attack over Labour Day weekend. A documentary crew spent a month in Afghanistan with The Crazy Eights, hunkered down in dust-filled trenches while the platoon struggles to rebuild a war-ravaged nation.
