One of the boldest gambles in modern military history, the surprise attack on Baghdad by three battalions of tanks and APCs and less than 1,000 men total was the single stroke that is credited for ending the Iraqi war.

    Natasha De Alencar lost her husband in a war that even six years ago, just a quarter of Americans said they followed closely, according to a Pew Research Center survey. It has become America’s forgotten war, overshadowed by the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, even as the Islamic State gains a foothold in Afghanistan. “Honestly, I thought the war was over before Mark got sent there,” said Natasha De Alencar’s sister Alisha Brown.
