From Delta Force Operators to CIA Field Officers, SWAT teams to Navy SEALs, HEROES UNDER FIRE recounts the stories of those who distinguish themselves above all others in perilous situations of combat, rescue missions, covert assignments, drug wars, and hostile intelligence operations.
They're cold-blooded killers in pursuit of one thing--political power. In the south, militant cleric Muqtada al-Sadr unleashes his militia on U.S. Marines policing Najaf. The two forces battle hand-to-hand in a 1,000-year-old cemetery.
In central Iraq, a skilled insurgent mortar team tries to disrupt national elections by targeting polling places. Marine Recon squads quietly hunt them down and kill them one-by-one.
In the northern city of Mosul, Uday and Qusay Hussein, Saddam's sons, help plan and fund insurgent training and operations. U.S. Special Forces and 101st Airborne troops surround their hardened, reinforced hideout and decimate it. For Iraq's "Most Wanted", the message is clear: surrender and you might live; resist and you will not.
