Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

A Western television first, this powerful film details a recruit's life inside a Soviet army barracks. It follows Valera Krylov, 18, as he gets his first uniform, endures weapons training, political education and boredom, and focuses on his worried parents, who know that in the next two years he may be fighting in Afghanistan.
