For now, we have no idea what happened.

If theyre dead or alive.

But were going to find them.

Those who know me will vouch for this:

I have never left a man, body

or even a vehicle behind.

Well scour the sector.

Here are my orders:

Always stay in view of squad leaders,

day and night.

We close the posts

and adjust the windows.

No one can get in or out through them.

Motion detectors go above each post.

For now, no talk of the missing men

until we have news for their families.

Itll be tough but Im blocking

the phone line for now.

You may go.

I dont buy it.

The blanket doesnt work in motion.

Its noisy and heat leaks.

What am I supposed to say?

They may have gone AWOL.

To get their throats slit in Pakistan?


May I ask you something?

Go ahead.

Id like a benediction.

A chaplain? Now?

If theres more fighting

and something happens...

Over there, thats not enough?

Benedictions are for the dead.

What you need is sangfroid.

That gets you home in one piece.

Ill see what I can do.

Fighters of Wakhan!

This sector is under international control.

We are prepared to hear your demands

for the release of our hostages.

Cease fire and open negotiations.

Lernowski, what you got?

A stake, Captain.

Describe it. No wires?

No, thats it.

A meter high, metal, rusty.

Have Mercier use the detector.

Nothing to report.

Just an old stake.

Nothing to report, Captain.

OK, carry on.

You havent been relieved?

Im not budging

till we get those bastards.

If it were up to me,

we wouldnt be dicking around.

What would you do?

Make those villagers talk.

Come on, the night our guys disappear,

they burn a sheep?

Civilian approaching!

Soldiers of France!

Open the gate!

Tear gas!

Who is this clown?

Search him!

Hes clean.

Have him identify himself.
