About this title


Describes the March 2003 ambush of a U.S. Army convoy outside Nasiriyah, the one from which Private Jessica Lynch was captured, and the efforts of a Marine battalion to rescue any surviving personnel, efforts that led to a brutal and costly urban battle that cost the lives of eighteen Marines. 25,000 first printing.


Pritchard' s excellently reported narrative details the bloodiest American military operation of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, the fight for Nasiriyah. Impossible to put down, it is a gripping account of SNAFUs, chaos, and heroism in a savage fight between U.S. Marines and Iraqi forces in the heart of a densely populated city, with several hundred thousand civilians caught in the crossfire. Ambush Alley offers a disturbing view into the down-and-dirty level of warfare which at the time was largely hidden from the American public. --Evan Wright, bestselling author of 'Generation Kill'

Tim Pritchard writes about men in war like very few dare to try. By the tenth or so page into his book you are no longer simply observing the action from your couch potato ass, you are with the young Marines, riding along with them in the back of an AMTRAK troop transport, sensing the ' feel' of combat, taking indiscriminate RPG rounds, and fired on by misdirected, fearsome A-10 ground attack jets. Ambush Alley truly takes you into the crucible of battle. It gives a new meaning to ' kicking ass' and true sensitivity to the term ' fear factor.' --Richard Marcinko, bestselling author of Rogue Warrior 'From the Hardcover edition.'
