Battle for Wanat (2008)

In July 2008, a pitched battle took place in the village of Wanat in Afghanistan's Waygal Valley. A contingent of 49 U.S. and 24 Afghan soldiers defended a small outpost against a coordinated attack by insurgent forces. After four hours of battle the insurgents withdrew. Nine American soldiers from the 503d Parachute Infantry Regiment died in the battle.
