300,000 soldiers, poised on the borders with Iraq, moved with meticulous precision. British forces encircled Basra while American armoured units made a lightning dash for the ultimate prize â€“ Baghdad itself. Using valuable lessons learned in the 1991 Gulf War, Coalition forces decimated Saddamâ€™s military units in conventional fights â€“ but there were still other, sometimes bitter, lessons to be learned. Sandstorms brought the armoured columns to a grinding halt, guerrilla fighters stalked the stretched supply lines, suicide bombers mingled with fleeing refugees â€“ and the much vaunted Apache helicopter proved terrifyingly vulnerable to the humble AK-47.
Featuring frontline combat footage from both British and American forces, WAR IN IRAQ provides a fast-paced overview of the war to victory in Baghdad, as well as detailed coverage of the many different Coalition aircraft, units, tanks and ships deployed in the war.
