Illustrated by Shumate Johnny Shumate, Gilliland Alan Gilliland

Illustrated by Shumate Johnny Shumate, Gilliland Alan Gilliland. Part of the Raid series. What started as a simple snatch-and-grab mission quickly degenerated into a desperate battle for survival when US Black Hawk helicopters were struck by rocket-propelled grenades and crashed into the streets of Mogadishu. Racing to save the crew, Task Force Ranger was surrounded by mobs of hostile Somali gunmen.

The United States had demonstrated its military superiority worldwide with its lightning victory over Iraq in 1991. As the only superpower in the world, few would argue that Washington could not prevail in a conventional conflict. Humanitarian missions, however, were another story. Although the United States had experience in a few humanitarian missions, it had just concluded operations in northern Iraq, and was soon to support the United Nations program to help the people in a failed state - Somalia.

Somalia was falling apart; it had ceased to exist as a country. Warring tribes had reduced it into an area controlled by warlords. Clan and internecine warfighting had caused major disruption in Somali life. Starvation was a weapon used by the clans. Humanitarian aid and relief arrived but, without security, this support provided little help to the people. On 15 August 1992, President George H.W. Bush ordered military units to airlift supplies into Kenya under Operation Provide Relief. These supplies would enter Somalia with international relief organizations. Still, clans stole the aid for themselves, harassed international relief agencies, extorted money, and allowed starvation to continue. By 8 December, Bush ordered Marines, the US Army's 10th Mountain Division, and Special Forces into Somalia to help UN forces bring order. Some 13,000 American military personnel became part of a security force of 38,000 from UN countries. This massive force helped stabilize Somalia, but the warring factions waited for an opportunity to reassert themselves. By October 1993, the UN security force had shrunk to 16,000, with 4,000 Americans. Two Somali warlords - Muhamed Farrah Aideed and Ali Mahdi Mohamed - had been fighting over control of the capital and main port of Mogadishu.

A raid on 3 October, TF Ranger's seventh, aimed at capturing high-ranking Aideed aides initially succeeded with a surprise assault in Mogadishu. While transferring the prisoners to a convoy, Aideed supporters shot down two Army Blackhawk helicopters. These actions resulted in heavy firefights throughout the route of evacuation and the crash sites. The Rangers and others, including two Special Forces snipers who held the second crash site alone, attempted to secure and rescue the downed helicopter crews. The Americans could call on helicopter gunships and had heavy firepower, but against an enemy difficult to identify, in an urban setting, outnumbered, and with darkness approaching, the situation looked grim. The Rangers and Special Forces (Delta Force) fought all night. The10th Mountain Division, Malaysian, and Pakistani forces rescued the Rangers at the first crash site the next day. At the second crash site, Aideed's forces had overwhelmed the area. The two Special Forces snipers died (they received the Congressional Medal of Honor posthumously). In the end, TF Ranger lost 16 killed and 83 wounded. One person died from the relief column. Aideed's force lost 500-1,000 killed and unknown numbers of wounded.

A really good read that brought all the bits and pieces I knew about Mogadishu. The books lets you know the setup, how the US and some allies got involved, their activities up to the incident, and even after. There are plenty of pictures, unlike one reviewer stated; however, there is only ONE known during the incident. The map of the area (with legend) is amazing. In an instant you see the area surrounding the AO, with close-ups of the actual AO. The paths are laid out in a way that lets you see just how claustrophobic that MOUT was. The after-action illustrates where it all went pear-shaped,and should have been foreseen.

Now one of my favorite Osprey books, which I appreciate for what they are...not expecting them to be a 230 page biopsy!

I was pleasantly surprised when looking through this Osprey raid series book at how much background and relevant information is contained in the book. This book by Clayton Chun provides ample pictures, charts and information supplemented with artwork to provide a solid understanding of the what, where and why of this complex series of operations. Two Delta team members were posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for their heroism during this battle.
The Osprey Raid series could be described as focusing on a battle.
I have over 500 Osprey titles and enjoy reading and benefit from the information contained in the volumes.

A good wrap up of the incident in 1993 with maps, photos, and graphics. Good for gamers - you will need a lot of buildings. Also a good companion to the movie and original book. Somewhat less personnel than the book or movie, but not much, it provides good background to the UN operations in Mogadishu, the Special Operations Force plan, a good description of what went wrong, and what the consequences were.

For those interested in Mogadishu 1993 and the Black Hawk Down mission, Gothic Serpent, this is a useful book and a good read.

It also explains where the American special forces went wrong.

Recommend Thomas E. Ricks' book THE GENERALS as well, as a companion to this book.

While Bowden's book focused on the personal stories of the soldiers, this title focus on a more broad view of the strategy and politics for Somalia at that time.
The book is well writen and goes into some details of the rescue force that is not told in Black Hawk Down, but the format is more appropriated for a printed edition because the maps and photographs have a low resolution in Kindle and those are the great strength of this book. If not for this question, I would have rated it 4 stars.
Gaudiker
This is a bit more "objective" than Mark Bowden's famous book, "Blackhawk Down" but when read along with Mr. Bowden's book, or read after watching this event on the History channel, it gives a very comprehensive overview of what happened there, short of having been there myself.
Uriel
As always Osprey delivers, but like anything, they can only go in as deep as the details they are given by their respective sources. While it would have been nice to see details on the various Tier 1 elements of Delta Force and SEAL Team 6, it was still a good read, especially in regards to actions on the objective and the events that proceeded the necessity of the raid.

Still a worthy addition to the Osprey collection.
Cerar
I missed the Osprey Publishing when I ordered. I wanted to get another point of view on the overall situation at the time of Task Force Ranger. Not that Osprey books are bad but not much depth. Some new things were discussed and it was worth the read and price. I did not learn much more about the operation.
Excellent detail, not your average book on a battle. It is written as a detailed mission report. Well researched and wll organized.
