Abstract:

"Combining unprecedented author access with behind-the-scenes and frontline reporting, The March Up is the definitive account of the twenty-two-day march on Baghdad during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Here is the story as only those who accompanied the Marines in the field can tell it: the strategy, the politics, and the combat that resulted in a quick and decisive victory - but that was shadowed by second-guessing, unexpected reversals, and the ever-present threat of catastrophe. Here, too, for the first time ever in this edition, is a follow-up report after Bing West's return to Iraq."--BOOK JACKET.
