... and how that one unit got ambushed can be found in some new army report.
The report, published on Thursday, says that the soldiers' trouble began when their fatigued unit commander took a wrong turn on a road near the city of Nasariyah, that led them into an area still under Iraqi control.
However, the situation facing the 507th Maintenance Company troops was made even worse by malfunctioning equipment, including weapons that jammed and vehicles that broke down, the report says.
The report also says that Private Lynch received her injuries when the Humvee jeep she was riding in was hit by gunfire and slammed into a truck - not in a dogged last-stand fire fight with the enemy as some media reports had suggested.
