Chain of Command is an intimate portrait of the war against violent extremism, and the men and women devoting their lives to it. With unprecedented access to the U.S. Armed Forces, Chain of Command inhabits the rarely-glimpsed innermost sanctums of the Pentagon, the front lines of battlefields across the world, and even the cockpit of a fighter jet on a mission. 
This series delivers extraordinary insight into a line of authority and responsibility as never seen before, including a rare on-camera sit-down with General Joseph Dunford Jr., the 19th chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. 

From the halls of power at the Pentagon in Washington, DC, to the front lines in Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Niger and South America, and to the surprising ISIS recruiting ground of Trinidad and Tobago, viewers will see first-hand how decisions made at the Pentagon have a direct impact on service members on the ground, fighting to protect Americans and their allies from radicalized extremists.
