Storyline

The Long Road Home tells the 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.

Would you want to do it?
6 December 2017 | by cleishmainsSee all my reviews

I really can't understand all the negative reviews this series has garnered as I really enjoyed it. It's not the best acted but it depicts a true series of events and does an excellent job of showing how badly the American forces had prepared for urban warfare at that time.

Sending an open truck, without a radio and full of troops into streets of multi-storey buildings packed with well armed insurgents is obviously, in hindsight, just madness but that was what the American military did. In a similar fashion the UK sent out unarmoured Land Rover Defenders before finding out that they tended to get blown up by unscrupulous terrorists. Lessons were learned the hard way back then and the series does a good job of showing that.

Yes the "homeland" stuff is occasionally a bit cheesy but people "Get over yourselves!" and see the entire series for, overall, a relatively inexpensive good bit of TV entertainment.
