One true American hero after another...
21 August 2003 | by (Camp Hill, PA) – See all my reviews

If you have seen the Hollywood version of the book "Black Hawk Down" and have wondered if that is how urban warfare really takes place - here is your answer. The real life commentary by the soldiers that fought in Somalia is chilling, and at the same time inspiring. Knowing that people like these men even exist should make you proud to be an American. Now that I have raved about the content we can not ignore the way it was put togehter for TV. Just the right amount of real and dramatized images, along with the true stories from men who barley survived. When you are done watching this you will not be sorry you spent the time.
