A mashup video of Royal Marines and US Marines in combat with the Taliban during a 2011 deployment.

From 2008 until 2011 it was not uncommon to find US Marines and British forces operating together in southern Afghanistan. The primary reason for this was the 2008 US troop surge into southern Afghanistan. This mashup video, taken primarily from the helmet camera of a Royal Marine, shows the Bootnecks, and Leathernecks taking it straight to the Taliban together. This is definitely not a combination of troops I would want to be on the receiving end of.
