్ Hardcover @Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War For Free ಊ Kindle By Mark Bowden ಓ ్ Hardcover @Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War For Free ಊ Kindle By Mark Bowden ಓ Journalist Mark Bowden delivers a strikingly detailed account of the 1993 nightmare operation in Mogadishu that left 18 American soldiers dead and many wounded This early foreign policy disaster for the Clinton administration led to the resignation of Secretary of Defense Les Aspin and a total troop withdrawal from Somalia Bowden does not spend much time considering the context instead he provides a moment by moment chronicle of what happened in the air and on the ground His gritty narrative tells of how Rangers and elite Delta Force troops embarked on a mission to capture a pair of high ranking deputies to warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid only to find themselves surrounded in a hostile African city Their high tech MH 60 Black Hawk helicopters had been shot down and a number of other miscues left them trapped through the night Bowden describes Mogadishu as a place of Mad Max like anarchy implying strongly that there was never any peace for the supposed peacekeepers to keep He makes full use of the defense bureaucracy s extensive paper trail which includes official reports, investigations, and even radio transcripts to describe the combat with great accuracy, right down to the actual dialogue He supplements this with hundreds of his own interviews, turning Black Hawk Down into a completely authentic nonfiction novel, a lively page turner that will make readers feel like they re standing beside the embattled troops This will quickly be realized as a modern military classic John J MillerThis is military writing at its breathless best Bowden Bringing the Heat has used his journalistic skills to find and interview key participants on both sides of the October 1993 raid into the heart of Mogadishu, Somalia, a raid that quickly became the most intensive close combat Americans have engaged in since the Vietnam War But Bowden s gripping narrative of the fighting is only a framework for an examination of the internal dynamics of America s elite forces and a critique of the philosophy of sending such high tech units into combat with minimal support He sees the Mogadishu engagement as a portent of a disturbing future The soldiers mission was to seize two lieutenants of a powerful Somali warlord Despite all their preparation and training, the mission unraveled and they found themselves fighting ad hoc battles in ad hoc groups Eschewing the post facto rationalization that characterizes so much military journalism, Bowden presents snapshots of the chaos at the heart of combat On page after page, in vignette after vignette, he reminds us that war is about breaking things and killing people In Mogadishu that day, there was no room for elaborate rules of engagement In the end, it was a task force of unglamorous straight leg infantry that saved the trapped raiders Did the U.S err by creating elite forces that are too small to sustain the attrition of modern combat That s one of the key questions Bowden raises in a gripping account of combat that merits thoughtful reading by anyone concerned with the future course of the country s military strategy and its relationship to foreign policy Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc.
