Great book. Tells the true story of the American involvement in the Somalia civil war when two blackhawk helicopters were shot down while on a mission in the captial city of Mogadishu. While I'm a huge Ridley Scott fan and I did love the movie, the book is, of course, even better, largely because it tells the story of the young men from a more personal angle.
