"Embedded" in the famed 101st Airborne Division, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Rick Atkinson ac-companies them from their deployment at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, through the major engagements of the 2003 Iraq War, including the assault on Baghdad. The feel of an air assault in dusty desert terrain; the confusion of battle felt by the commander, General David Petraeus, and his troops; the momentary elation of victory followed by the difficulty of imposing order on chaos without adequate personnel--all explode here like well-placed grenades, one after another. Richard Poe narrates with the clipped military precision of an AK-47, yet with just enough passion to carry us with him, at once maintaining listener interest and the journalist's objectivity. Atkinson's journey introduces us to our new military and its new terrain, both of which Americans will have to become increasingly familiar with.
