Combat footage recorded by French Marines in Afghanistan shows them in heavy combat with Taliban fighters.
The combat took place in Kapisa Province, eastern Afghanistan, in 2010 during operation Bison.
The Troupes de Marine (TDM, lit. ’Marine Troops’) is a subdivision of the French Army that includes several specialities: infantry, artillery, armoured, airborne, engineering, and transmissions (Signals). Despite its name, it forms part of the Army, not the Navy. The TDM has gradually become professionalized since 1970.
