Based on the New York Times best-selling book by internationally acclaimed journalist Martha Raddatz, The Long Road Home tells the story of “Black Sunday,” when a small platoon of soldiers from the 1st Cavalry Division was ferociously ambushed in Sadr City, Baghdad, in April 2004. Eight Americans would make the ultimate sacrifice that day and more than 65 would be seriously wounded. The eight-part global miniseries event offers viewers a gripping and intimate look at the toll war takes on soldiers and their families. The emotional journey follows the action on two fronts: the chaotic and terror-filled streets of Sadr City and the homefront at Fort Hood, where family members desperately await news of their loved ones.
