Five years after the defeat of Nazi Germany and Japan, a new menace to freedom arose in the East!

Three years later, the conflict ground to an inconclusive halt, as the political will of the exhausted Western democracies bled out on the battlefield of Pork Chop Hill.

Battle history of the USMC ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In March 2003, the American-led, Global War on Terror entered a new phase with the Anglo-American-led invasion of Iraq. The rapid advance of the US military forces and the quick collapse of Saddam Hussein's government resulted in only a temporary lull in the fighting. Within a few months of the end of formal combat operations against the Iraqi military, the country was wracked by widespread civil war and insurgency that saw Shiites versus Sunnis and an al-Qaeda-inspired insurgency by "I-Qaeda in Iraq" against American and other coalition forces. The United States Marine Corps was an integral part of the ground attack in the Second Gulf War and played a variety of roles throughout the period of combat operations. 1 MEF was a critical component of the US force that seized Baghdad and went on to take Tikrit, the heart of Sunni-dominated central Iraq. Eight years later, Marines are still on the ground playing a wide variety of combat, humanitarian, and training roles as the deployment of US military forces in Iraq nears its end. This is the story of those operations told through veteran accounts, informative maps, and dramatic combat footage
