In October 1993, an elite group of U.S. soldiers were sent into Mogadishu, Somalia as part of a U.N. peacekeeping operation. Their mission: to abduct two top lieutenants of the Somali warlord, Mohamed Farrah Aidid, as part of a strategy to quell the civil war and famine that was ravaging the country.
Arriving with good intentions, their carefully planned mission took an unexpected turn resulting in the U.S. military's single biggest firefight since Vietnam.
Based on the true story of the Battle of Mogadishu by Mark Bowden.
