THE TRUE STORY OF BLACK HAWK DOWN

Produced for History Channel, this documentary is about the events that took place in Somalia in 1993 based on Mark Bowden’s book. This is a compelling minute-by minute look at the battle that claimed 18 American lives and changed america’s foreign policy. US Rangers, delta operators, and Somali militiamen share their harrowing experiences, and former officials from Aidid’s organization reveal how they were able to use the attack to their advantage. Finally, diplomats and high-ranking officers reflect on the incident’s legacy, including the widely-held assumption that it weakened America’s resolve to send troops abroad. Balancing exceptional combat footage, brilliant commentary and the recollection of those who were there, The True Story Of Black Hawk Down is an unforgettable look at modern warfare.
