THE LONG ROAD HOME..The Story of Real Life Ambush of U.S. soldiers in Iraq

THE LONG ROAD HOME tells the true story of the eight-hour battle in Sadr City on April 4, 2004, that followed the ambush of a newly-arrived American platoon. Told in real time through the eyes of untested soldiers in combat for the first time, their families anxiously awaiting news on the home front, and ordinary Iraqis trapped in the chaos of war, the series gives viewers an intimate and unforgettable portrait of what it’s really like to go to war. Based on Martha Raddatz’s acclaimed New York Times-bestselling book.

 Our guest, Mikko Alanne wrote and produced this television series.

He talks (20 minutes into this episode) with Mark Thompson and (comedy writer) Laura House about what went into bringing the story to the screen.

The show starts with Mark’s quick thoughts on Paul Manafort and assorted indictments (first 3 minutes of show) and then THE FAST 15 with Michael Shure talking about other political issues and ultimately challenging Mark to a game involving Vegas movies. Fun for the whole family.
