DOW the battle of Fallujah
On 31 March 2004, four American Blackwater contractors were killed and images of their bodies being burned and mutilated were broadcast on television around the world. Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld, CENTCOM Commander GEN Abizaid, and Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) Ambassador Bremer decided a military response was needed immediately. Fallujah had become a symbol of resistance that dominated international headlines." Enemy insurgents have been building up in Fallujah preparing for a fight. They are ready to die as long as they take a NATO force service member with them."

CO AAR Description
Battle plan was for 2 M2A2 platoons to screen to the West of the city, have the tank platoons conduct passage of lines and provide a security line for the city. IFV’s then will conduct passage of lines to the West edge of the city and clear West to East with IFV’s and infantry. Once the southern city is clear, IFV’s will cross to the North and clear East to West in the Northern city.
Clearing in the city became too much for the IVF platoons, and tank support was brought into the city. With the bridge from South to North becoming a bottleneck, Tanks moved into the city in the North from the West.
Units took 3 hits resulting in damage and where recovered to support area, and destroyed units of one Bradley, and two tanks.
Not ideal clearing a town with tanks, but the unit did well, and cleared almost the entire insurgent force out of the town areas.
