The story of Task Force Ranger - a unit of US Rangers and Special Forces - and their attempt to capture the lieutenants of the Somali warlord Mohamed Farrah Aideed, during the 1993 UN's humanitarian relief mission. What started as a simple snatch-and-grab mission quickly degenerated into a desperate battle for survival when US Black Hawk helicopters were struck by rocket-propelled grenades and crashed into the streets of Mogadishu. Racing to save the crews, Task Force Ranger was surrounded by mobs of Somali gunmen. The battle raged all night as the better-equipped and better-trained US forces kept the nearly overwhelming numbers of Somalis at bay. Finally, battered, bloodied, and low on ammunition, the Task Force was rescued by a combined UN and US relief force and extracted to safety. Contains detailed maps and declassified information, this is a dramatic retelling of a brutal battle that had a far-reaching impact on US military policy. Raid 31; Chun; 80 pages.
