Gen. Benjamin C. Freakley, Asst. Division Commander, 101st Airborne, Operation Iraqi Freedom, from the March-April 2004 issue of Infantry Magazine. Three Block War is 21st Century warfare defined. A clash of highly-trained and motivated warriors equipped with modern weaponry, opposed by a brutal cornucopia of asymmetrical zealotry and international terrorism, thriving in a land saturated with Soviet munitions.Part I: Iraqi Freedom chronicles the action in 2003--from the fierce urban battles in southern Iraq at Nasiriyah and the Faw Peninsula--to the mechanized assault that captured Baghdad and toppled Saddam Hussein. Battle tactics and the strategies of highly-aggressive commanders such as 1st Marine Divisions Maj. Gen. James Mattis and 3rd Battalion, 4th Marines Lt. Col. B.P. McCoy are also chronicled.Part II: Snipers in the Sky recounts 2004--the intensity, danger, courage, sacrifice and esprit de corps that U.S. Marines experienced fighting jihad in western Iraqs Anbar Province. From the Syrian border to Ramadi, Najaf and particularly Fallujah, the Marines fought legendary battles on desert sands, city streets and even inside the worlds largest graveyard from April - December.
