Mission 36 - Overview
Fallujah: Operation al-Fajr (Dawn)

Fallujah, Iraq. November 8, 2004: In an integral push to finally regain control of the violent Sunni city in time for national elections at the end of January, more than 10,000 US troops launch an all-out assault on Fallujah.

The ground attack comes after weeks of aerial precision strikes on suspected insurgent and terrorist safehouses, especially those of Jordanian-born militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Operation Phantom Fury - later renamed Operation al-Fajr (Dawn) by the Iraqi Defense Minister - is the largest military campaign in nearly two years and an epic undertaking in the war in Iraq. A virtual avalanche of Marines, Army soldiers, and Iraqi forces are tasked with blasting their way through each and every structure in the insurgent stronghold.

As US forces strategically prepare for the assault, so, too, does the enemy. Many escape before the well-publicized assault, but more than 3,000 insurgents stay to fight. At their disposal are enormous weapons caches, bomb-making laboratories, networks of safe houses, and series of underground tunnels. But their fortifications are no match for the American military, and it takes just six days for US troops to fight their way across Fallujah - a much quicker operation than expected.

In today's Kuma News Report, Major General Thomas L. Wilkerson joins Jacki Schechner to discuss the strategy behind the fight for control of Fallujah and the importance of profound victory there. Dante Anderson. Kuma's Head of Product Development, is also on hand to talk about the challenging process of recreating the crackdown on Fallujah in a very short period of time. Then it's your turn to experience the intense mission of pacifying a city swarming with Sunni insurgents determined to keep control of a city teeming with violence, death, and destruction.
