Based on ABC News’ Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz’s bestselling book of the same name, The Long Road Home relives a heroic fight for survival when the 1st Cavalry Division from Fort Hood was ambushed on April 4, 2004, in Sadr City, Baghdad—a day that came to be known as “Black Sunday.” The miniseries stars Jeremy Sisto (Law & Order), Noel Fisher (Shameless), and Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break), and premiered on the National Geographic Channel on 11/7.

The First Cavalry Division came under surprise attack in Sadr City on Sunday, April 4, 2004. More than seven thousand miles away, their families awaited the news for forty-eight hellish hours—expecting the worst. In this powerful, unflinching account, Martha Raddatz takes readers from the streets of Baghdad to the home front and tells the story of that horrific day through the eyes of the courageous American men and women who lived it.
