Target: Baghdad! For 21 days in the spring of 2003, two divisions of U.S. soldiers and Marines race north across the Iraqi desert from Kuwait. Their mission: seize the Iraqi capital as quickly as possible. The planners of Operation Iraqi Freedom believe that taking Baghdad in a hurry will be like "cutting off the head of the snake." That it will bring a speedy end to the war. Without command and control coming from the capital, Saddam's army in the field will be toothless. But it won't be a cakewalk. There's a tenacious force of guerrilla fighters eager to throw up roadblocks. They call themselves Saddam Fedayeen -- "Saddam's Men of Sacrifice" -- and they're more than happy to die for their dictator. The Fedayeen weapon of choice is the RPG -- the rocket-propelled grenade. This nasty piece of hand-held artillery can stop the Marines' thin-shelled armored personnel carrier, and it can even put a tank out of commission if it hits it in just the right spot. We'll hear from troops who found themselves on the receiving end of punishing RPG barrages. And we'll listen in as these same veterans recount stories of brutal shootouts with Fedayeen on the bloody road to Baghdad.moreless
