The 1993 American mission to capture a Somali military leader was planned to take no more than an hour, but the nearly 100 elite US soldiers found themselves pinned down in Mogadishu and a night of fighting resulted in a downed Black Hawk helicopter and extensive casualties. This 1999 account of the conflict is a classic of contemporary military history that was adapted for film in 2001, and includes a new foreword by the author.
