Current events in Iraq have, unfortunately, clouded the truly remarkable achievement of the United States military in the campaign that ousted thug Saddam Hussein from power in Spring 2003. On April 5 and 7, armored elements of the 3rd Infantry Division made bold strikes into the heart of Baghdad, occupying a number of buildings and sites associated with the Iraqi government and the ruling Baath Party. It was a bloody affair and is largely unknown to the general public. Zucchino, who was Mark Bowden's (BLACK HAWK DOWN) editor at THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, makes the listener not merely an observer, but a participant in the action. This account of the horror and heroism of war is ably performed by Richard M. Davisdon. His voice is steady and calm, and adroitly gives life to both narrative and dialogue.
