When the 4th Infantry Division from Fort Carson was deployed to Iraq in 2007, the men found themselves in a city known as a safe haven for criminals and terrorists. No other allied forces had dared enter Sadr City to suppress the insurgents. The area of Sadr City is an untamed city inhabited by nearly two and a half million people, some of whom found safety and comfort in the protection offered by the United States Army. Their task was to build a wall to contain the enemy inside the city. How could they wall off an entire city while being shot at by the enemy at the same time?
Discover what the media did not report in its coverage of the War on Terror. This is the true story of the last battle for Baghdad through the eyes of an infantry soldier as he leads his men to accomplish an important strategic initiative against insurmountable odds. Join the soldiers of the ''Beaver Platoon'' in the battles they fight in the streets of Baghdad and within their own souls. These are the miracles that saved the men of Charlie Company and transformed the life of one of its leaders forever.
