A strange story about US troops who say they saw a giant in Afghanistan has amazed and confused many. Stories of people meeting legendary creatures have also made people interested and skeptical.

One of the most well-known stories is about the "Giant of Kandahar," a 13-foot-tall creature that U.S. special forces are said to have seen in 2002. The giant was said to have had fiery red hair, six fingers on each hand, and two rows of teeth.

The fight is said to have happened in a rural area of Kandahar, where a U.S. patrol went missing. The special forces group found the giant cooking food when they got there. When they got into a fight, the giant killed one soldier with a spear. After 30 seconds of steady shooting, the rest of the unit killed the giant.

The Kandahar Giant story became famous on several websites and was told in Nick Orton's book Tales from the Grid Square, a collection of strange military encounters. Even though the story received much attention, the U.S. Department of Defense said it had no record of such an event.

Many people thought it was a myth or a complicated hoax. However, conspiracy theories and people of the supernatural are still interested in the story.
