Description
 
For soldiers in the 101st Airborne Division, the road to Baghdad began in late Feb. 2003. For Atkinson, who would spend nearly 2 months covering the div. for “The Wash. Post,” the war in Iraq provided a unique opportunity to observe today’s U.S. Army in combat. Here, Atkinson presents an intimate & revealing portrait of the soldiers who fight the expeditionary wars that have become the hallmark of our age. At the center of this drama stands the compelling figure of Major Gen. David H. Petraeus. Atkinson spent virtually all day every day at Petraeus’s elbow in Iraq, where he had an unobstructed view of the stresses, anxieties, & large joys of commanding 17,000 soldiers in combat. “A compelling view of the modern American soldier in action.” Illus.
