The Final Mission: Foxy’s War airs Thurs 30 May 2019 on Channel 4



Former elite Special Forces soldier Jason Fox embarks on a highly personal journey back to Afghanistan, nearly a decade after he last set foot in the country where he endured harrowing combat experiences during multiple tours of duty. Afghanistan both defined Jason as a soldier and made him the man he is today. He spent more than three years fighting in a war that saw some of the fiercest battles in modern British military history. He saw friends killed and seriously injured in combat, and narrowly escaped death multiple times.

This left him with a punishing personal legacy: PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Because of this, Jason was discharged from the Special Forces and made to leave behind the life and job he loved. Now he’s attempting to understand this complex country and the people he was sent to help. He meets old friends and former enemies, and asks whether the sacrifices were worth the traumatic legacy that he, the Afghan people, and many of his fellow soldiers have been left to endure.
