"Combining unprecedented author access with frontline reporting, THE MARCH UP is the definitive account of the 22-day march to Baghdad during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Included in this edition is a new chapter by Bing West, who returned to Iraq in late summer 2003 to cover the Marines' activities after the march up until they handed their territory over to foreign troops, and returned home. Winner of the 2004 William E. Colby Award, the 2004 General Wallace M. Greene Award, a Washington Post Book World's Top Non-Fiction pick, and selected for the Marine Corps Commandment's Reading List, this updated edition continues to provide an unflinching account of war ""as only those who have fought it can describe it,"" as senator John McCain praised."
