Book Description

1999 National Book Award nominee for Nonfiction.

The gripping story of the October 1993 mission by a U.S. Special Forces in Mogadishu, Somalia that turned into a bloodbath that would cost the lives of 18 American soldiers. A modern military classic.

Black Hawk Down is Mark Bowden’s account of the longest sustained firefight involving American troops since the Vietnam War. On October 3, 1993, about a hundred elite U.S. soldiers were dropped by helicopters into the teeming market in the heart of Mogadishu, Somalia. Their mission was to abduct two top lieutenants of a Somali warlord and return to base. It was supposed to take an hour. Instead they found themselves pinned down through a long and terrible night fighting against thousands of heavily armed Somalis. The following morning, eighteen Americans were dead and more than seventy badly injured.
