Summary
The prison at Abu Ghraib was still a relatively unknown part of America's War on Terror when--with no special training and their gear lost somewhere between the United States and Baghdad--the 152nd Field Artillery Battalion of the Maine National Guard was sent there to serve as guards in February 2004. Just before their arrival, the now infamous photos of the abuses suffered by the prisoners hit the world stage. Abu Ghraib became the focal point not only for global condemnation but for the insurgents' outrage. Packed for the Wrong Trip tells the true story of how they relied on each other and their own ingenuity to survive and to transform one of the most inhumane detainee centers into a functioning, humane prison--or as close to one as you could get when tucked between Baghdad and the insurgent stronghold of Fallujah
