A Rolling Stone reporter, embedded with The 1st Recon Marines chronicles his experiences during the first wave of the American-led assault on Baghdad in 2003.
David Simon and Ed Burns, you know, the guys who brought you "The Wire" adapted this miniseries from its book. It's all about the dialog and the characters. Ask a marine, this is pretty much what it was like being there. HBO, Ed,David and these actors brought it to life. It isn't trite, it isn't overly graphic, it just is and its well done.
