Abstract:

The author, the man who trained and led Cougar Squadron (2nd Squadron of the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment) into battle, recounts two stories. One is the inspiring tale of the valiant American soldiers, sergeants, lieutenants, and captains who fought and won the battle. The other is a story of failed generalship, one that explains why Iraq's Republican Guard escaped, ensuring that Saddam Hussein's regime survived and America's war with Iraq dragged on. Its fast-moving battle narrative is told from the vantage point of Macgregor's Abrams tank, and it gives detailed portraits of American soldiers, along with vivid descriptions of the devastating technology of mounted warfare.
