Summary
Baghdad, Iraq 2003. It was impossible for the Marines of the First Recon Battalion to anticipate what would occur during those first 40 days of the Iraq War. The battalion found themselves struggling with shoddy supplies, frustrated by the chain of command and questioning the mission at every turn. A gritty, raw and brutally honest insider's look at what has become of our contemporary American war
