Summary
Fallujah, the cradle of an insurgency that plunged Iraq into years of chaos and bloodshed, conjures up images of the brutal house-to-house fighting that occurred during the 2004 U.S. invasion of the iconic city. The violence peaked again two years later when American Marines and Iraqi government forces struggled with a reinvigorated insurgency and the prospect of premature withdrawal by U.S. forces
Summary
Explains how local tribal leaders and U.S. Marines forged an unlikely alliance that helped secure the famous battleground of Fallujah, recounting events from both American and Iraqi perspectives
