Catch a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes in some of the most dangerous places in the world with Fighting Extremes: From Ebola to ISIS at the Imperial War Museum London.

From taking measures against the deadly Ebola outbreak in West Africa, to the coalition fight against ISIS in the Middle East, this is a chance to see just how British service men and women risk their lives to combat current global security threats.

The exhibition features never-before-displayed objects, photos and military equipment, and uses first-hand accounts from service personnel to tell the stories behind the operations. An exploration of the complexity of contemporary conflict, this is a chance to discover how emergency treatment centres are set up and how air strikes, the training of local forces and intelligence gathering have been used to battle terror groups.
