“By March 21, [2003] it [Coalition forces] had advanced over 100 miles (160 kilometers) into southern Iraq. Other troops landed by sea on the coast south of Baghdad and seized control of important ports and oilfields. The bigger U.S. forces drove in a two-pronged attack toward Baghdad, while the smaller British Army forces advanced toward Basra.”

 – Andrew Langley, Bush, Blair, and Iraq: Days of Decision, Page 31
