Operation Medusa has become the most celebrated battle in recent Canadian history. It was hailed as a stroke of military genius that may have vanquished the Taliban once and for all. 

But the soldiers and commanders on the ground have a different story to tell. A rushed battle. Flawed intelligence. And generals putting political considerations ahead of Canadian lives. 

And even though Canada had defeated the Taliban on the battlefield, that didn’t mean they were winning the war.

 

Featured in this episode: Sean Teal, Bruce Moncur, Omer Lavoie, Adnan R. Khan, Eugene Lang
