Ben Griffin, VFP UK: The Making of a Modern British Soldier

Wow, watch this…trust us. Ben’s fascinating narrative could easily apply to any of the world’s top-tier militaries and his personal reflections brilliantly illustrate a service member’s experience.

Ever wondered…

  • Why do people join?
  • What’s the training like?
  • How do the services build loyalty, camaraderie, and obedience?
  • How does one learn to kill?
  • How does an occupying force spread “democracy?”
  • Do they really hate us for our freedoms or could it be something else?
