Black Hawk Down

One of the books i will be reading is a book called Black Hawk Down written by Mark Bowden. This book documents a U.S. task force attempt to capture a Somalian faction leader Mohamed Farrah Aidid. This causes a battle that last for about a day and one U.S. helicopter (Black Hawk) is downed and the pilot is captured. It shows the soldiers experience first hand during this battle. I chose this book because I saw the movie and never really got around to reading the book so now would be a good time too.
