In “Mosul,” FRONTLINE presented an extraordinary look at the brutal battle to drive ISIS out of Iraq’s second-largest city, which some military commanders described at the time as the deadliest urban combat since World War II.

The people of Mosul had endured the repressive rule of ISIS for more than two years. This is the story of the men who fought back — and defeated the self-proclaimed Islamic State in their stronghold. Filmed on the ground by director Olivier Sarbil over the course of the nine-month battle, “Mosul” offers a stunning look at the high cost of the Iraqi Army’s liberation of Mosul from ISIS in July 2017.
