A brutal, forty-eight-hour firefight in Sadr City in April 2004 marked the beginning of the Iraqi insurgency. While men were wounded or killed, their families awaited "the call"---the notification that a husband or brother had died in action. ABC White House correspondent Martha Raddatz presents perhaps the most riveting account of hand-to-hand combat to emerge from the war in Iraq, as well as the horror, terror, bravery, and fortitude of the wives and children whose lives are now forever changed.
Three-time Emmy award winner Martha Raddatz is the chief White House correspondent for ABC News. In June 2006, she broke the story of the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
