Step back in time to 2003 when the United States carried out the surprise attack on Iraqi forces. The overnight attack was quick and swift and the darkness was lit up by tracers and missiles alike.
Someone from one of the battalions was able to record what was happening with his night vision goggles, and the footage below shows the chaos of that night.
Top comment on Liveleak: I love this song: “brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrt” “ratatatatatatatata” “whoosh” “boom” “whoosh” “boom.”
From Gatling guns targeting enemy soldiers in trenches to attack helicopters firing missiles at military structures, that night saw some of the most aggressive fighting seen in decades.
Check out the nonstop action in the video below. It’s sure to make your heart beat a little faster.
