Publisher's Summary

On October 3, 1993, Task Force Ranger was dispatched to seize two high-profile lieutenants of a Somali warlord. Special Forces troops were transported by ground vehicles and helicopters, and the mission was meant to be over within the hour. They quickly found themselves under heavy fire, and two Black Hawk helicopters were shot down. With a hastily organized relief column many hours away, the American troops faced a desperate battle for survival.  

Focusing on the stories of the soldiers on the ground and in the air, Day of the Rangers reveals the experiences and recollections of the Special Forces units, including the Rangers, Delta operators, and Nightstalker crews who fought in the battle of Mogadishu.  

Published to mark the battle's 25th anniversary and using recently declassified documents and new interviews with many of the participants, Day of the Rangers is a fascinating and revealing new history of a battle that would influence American Special Forces for decades to come.

Wow. Great story

The story told fills in many details about that fateful mission as told by members of Task Force Ranger that were not heard from in the "Black Hawk Down" book. It It's great to know that my old unit, the 10th Mountain Div., fought bravely and were not incompetent as depicted in the movie.
