The March up - Taking Baghdad with the 1st Marine Division
Bing West & Major General Ray L. Smith
with an Introduction by John Keegan

'Here's an insider's look at the dramatic sequence of events that unfolded during the 1st Marine Division's 22-day assault from Kuwait to Baghdad.

Taking us straight to the front lines, The March Up follows the famed 1st Marine Division on their decisive 1,184 kilometre trek to Baghdad, from the first assault on 20 March to the taking of the city and the collapse of the Iraqi regime on 10 April 2003. With access to three-star generals and privates, West and Smith trace the strategic war plans as they unfolded in battle, providing unflinching portrayals of what went well and what failed, and detailing power struggles which have never before been reported.

No other journalists had the mobility, battlefield knowledge or personal contacts of West and Smith. What emerges is a dramatic, personal and human account of how the corporals fought and the generals plotted revealing the men behind the guns and the brave and sometimes unorthodox actions that resulted in astonishing results.
