Sunday on Midrats: Episode 176- "Fallujah Awakens" with Bill Ardolino

Join us at Midrats on BlogTalkRadio, Sunday, May 19, 2013 for Episode 176: "Fallujah Awakens" with Bill Ardolino:

How did the US Marine Corps and local tribal leaders turn the corner in Fallujah? Who were the people on the ground, Iraqi and American, who were the catalyst for the change that brought about a sea change in the tactical, operational, and strategic direction in Iraq?

Our guest for the full hour to discuss that and more will be author Bill Ardolino. We will use as a base of our discussion his new book, Fallujah Awakens: Marines, Sheikhs, and the Battle Against al Qaeda.

Bill is the associate editor of The Long War Journal. He was embedded with the U.S. Marine Corps, the U.S. Army, the Iraqi Army, and the Iraqi Police in Fallujah, Habbaniyah, and Baghdad in 2006, 2007, and 2008, and later with U.S. and Afghan forces in Kabul, Helmand and Khost provinces in Afghanistan. His reports, columns, and photographs have received wide media exposure and have been cited in a number of academic publications. He lives in Washington, DC.

    Awakening type operations are one of those things that the USMC has excelled at, all the way back to the Banana Wars in the Carribean region and South America. Unfortunately, we seem to forget, institutionally, how well this works.
