We Got Him -- The Hunt For Saddam Hussein
June 2003, two Iraqi businessmen approached an American outpost,
claiming to know
important information. What they revealed invigorated American soldiers to pursue
one of the worlds most notorious dictators. Their journey is a grand saga of human experience,
testing every element of character and fortitude in a six-month manhunt that ended at a
hole on the bank of the Tigris River. This account exposes the blow-by-blow plays of
the actual raids that netted Saddam, with never before revealed information.
Written by LTC Steve Russell, Commander of 1-22 Infantry 2003-2005.
