About the Event

From Academy Award-nominated executive producer Mike Medavoy and based on The New York Times best-selling book Martha Raddatz, National Geographic Channel’s "The Long Road Home" relives a heroic fight for survival during the Iraq War, when the 1st Cavalry Division from Fort Hood was ferociously ambushed on April 4, 2004, in Sadr City, Baghdad — a day that came to be known as “Black Sunday.” The series cuts between the action on the ground in Iraq and that of the homefront back in Texas, where wives and families await news for 48 hellish hours, expecting the worst. Starring Michael Kelly, Jason Ritter, Kate Bosworth, Sarah Wayne Callies, Noel Fisher and Jeremy Sisto, the eight-part miniseries premieres Tuesday, November 7th at 9/8C on National Geographic.
