The ground war to oust Saddam Hussein by United States and coalition forces from Kuwait has begun. Scott 'Journal' Neithammer has come out of retirement and finds himself and his photographer lost in the desert and many miles behind enemy lines. It soon becomes evident that danger takes more than one form as they are captured by Iraqi forces. But with escape comes the realization that friendly fire can make you just as dead as Saddam's army. Collects issues 5-9 of GULF WAR JOURNAL. "First rate...alternates documentary-style reporting with documentary-style fiction. One of the five best war comics." - Don Thompson, The Comics Buyer's Guide. "Stresses authenticity.
