War - Iraq
 
BOOTS ON THE GROUND: A MONTH WITH THE 82ND AIRBORNE IN THE BATTLE FOR IRAQ
by: Karl Zinsmeister
St. Martin's Press

"I'm going on a month without running water. I haven't had my current pants or shirt off in more than a week and temperatures are starting to hit 100 degrees... I dove over the high wooden stakes that enclosed the cargo area. Unfortunately, the backpack I was wearing hung up on something. I was dangling about seven feet off the ground... just run-of-the-mill reporters. Meaning that most of them are left-wing, cynical, wise-guy Ivy League types."

An account of the March 2003 drive of the 82nd Airborne 240 miles from Kuwait to Samawah.
