Korengal Valley - Heart of Darkness

The Korengal Valley holds a special place in the history of the Afghan War. Many of the U.S. military's fiercest fights took place in this area. The Korengal Valley is located in a remote part of Kunar province just south of the Pech River Valley in northeastern Afghanistan. A movie called "Restrepo" was filmed there by Sebastian Junger and Tim Hetherington. It has sometimes been called "the valley of death". (See maps, news articles, reports, and other information about the Korengal Valley). A recent news report provides some background about the Korengal Valley in "Heart of Darkness: Into Afghanistan's Taliban Valley", The Daily Beast, November 15, 2014.
