Abstract:

[This book tells] the story that can be told only by those who actually witnessed the action of the famed 1st marine Division's march on Baghdad, from the shaky beginning of U.S. operations in southern Iraq to the capture of U.S. prisoners, the misreported "fierce Iraqi resistance," and the aggressive assaults that led to a quick and decisive victory. [The authors] combine expert military analysis with dramatic battlefield reporting. They bring the reader on a march that ended in victory - but was shadowed by second-guessing, unexpected reversals, and the threat of catastrophe ... The authors reveal how the strategic plan played out in battle, showing what went well and what failed, and detailing power struggles for military and political control never reported.-Dust jacket.
