Episode Summary

EDIT
Iraq's Ambush Alley
AIRED:
It is supposed to be easy. And the city is supposed to be friendly. On March 23, 2003, a 1200-man battalion of U.S. Marines from Camp Lejeune, NC closes in on the Iraqi city of An Nasiriyah. Its mission: seize two bridges -- one on each end of town -- and hold them open so another convoy of Marines can roll through on its way to Baghdad. Word from intelligence analysts is that Nasiriyah might actually welcome the Marines. Saddam has oppressed the city's inhabitants for years, so they're no fans of the Hussein regime. But in recent weeks, Saddam loyalists have quietly infiltrated Nasiriyah -- some 3,000 of them. They've intimidated the citizens, stockpiled weapons and prepared fighting positions. It might not be enough to hold off the Marine onslaught, but the Americans won't capture the town without paying a price. And as the fog of war settles over the city, the men of 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines will begin to bleed. Tragically, some of the most devastating blows will not come at the hands of the enemy...They'll be the work of friendly forces.moreless
