In a dramatic three-week campaign beginning March 20, 2003, U.S. and British forces, along with several other countries in a coalition, destroyed the Iraqi army, defeating Saddam Hussein's oppressive regime. Over the coming months and years, former regime members, along with some armed anti-American forces from outside Iraq, started a long and bitter armed resistance. Iraq War, Revised Edition covers all the background material necessary to understand the circumstances surrounding this particular military undertaking. An important and timely resource for middle and high school readers, this new edition explores the history of the region as well as the recent events leading up to and culminating in this war.


Full-color and black-and-white photographs and illustrations. Full-color maps. Sidebars. Glossary. Further reading. Index.
