In 2010, German soldiers in Afghanistan were involved in the heaviest fighting since the establishment of the Bundeswehr. After eight months of preparation for operations, our 2nd Company, 92 Mechanized Infantry Training Battalion, was the first unit of Task Force Kunduz III to be deployed completely to Afghanistan, and only a few days after its arrival started to patrol the troubled district of Chahar Darreh.
