THE LONG ROAD HOME

The Long Road Home small logo

The Long Road Home is a mini-series based on Martha Raddatz's bestseller. It will chronicle the events of April 4, 2004, a day that became known in military annals as "Black Sunday," when a newly-arrived Platoon from the First Cavalry Division in Fort Hood, Texas, was ambushed in Sadr City in Baghdad. The event series will cut between the soldiers on the ground and the homefront in Texas, where their wives and families await news for 48 hellish hours, expecting the worst. The incident, which took place 11 months after President George W. Bush's "Mission Accomplished" speech, changed the American military's view of Iraq from a peacekeeping mission to a fight against domestic insurgents.
