By Michael J. Durant, Chief Warrant Officer 4 (Ret.), with Steven Hartov
This New York Times bestseller is the account of the 1993 battle in Mogadishu between American soldiers and Somali militiamen. The author, Black Hawk pilot Mike Durant, was shot down and taken prisoner during this battle, America’s biggest firefight since the Vietnam War.
Published in the 10th anniversary year of the Somali conflict, this gripping personal account at last tells the world about Durant’s harrowing captivity and the heroic deeds of his doomed comrades. And, as readers will discover, Durant proves himself to be nothing less than a hero.
