"In November 2005, Sunni insurgents attacked a U.S. Marine squad in Haditha. One marine died and two others were wounded. Squad members killed 24 Iraqi civilians, including an elderly couple, four women and six children. Legal proceedings dragged on for five years. This book investigates the tactics adopted by Marine Corps commanders and the ineptness of the proceedings"-- Provided by publisher.
