The Fight Against Islamic State

Emile Ghessen is a former British Royal Marine Commando who served in the military for 12 years, over these years he was exposed to extensive action in Iraq and Afghanistan. However his father is from Syria and came to the United Kingdom in the 1970’s but the majority of his family still live in Syria, because of this Ghessen is very much concerned with their well being due to the ongoing civil war and the rise of the Islamic State.

The Fight Against Islamic State was filmed over the course of a three year period which saw Ghessen follow volunteer fighters who made the journey to Iraq and Syria in order to join the Kurdish forces on the frontline in their fight against ISIS.
