I've seen the film years ago and this book outshines it. Amazing writing, amazing story, I kept forgetting this was real. Even if you hate history and think war is awful, this is still worth reading. It makes we want to regrade half of the books I read because this has expanded my idea of what a book can be.

Just to be sure I don't come across as a military nut, I think what happened in Somalia was awful and the US shouldn't have bothered with any interventions there and they just added to the misery. I'm in awe of the book, not the politics surrounding it. ( )

Narración minuto a minuto de una misión que no salió como se esperaba. En MOgadiscio, Somalia, una misión conjunta de los Rangers y la fuerza Delta (operaciones especiales del Ejército de Tierra) detiene a los principales lugartenientes de Aidid, el más importante señor de la guerra somalí. Al volver, sin embargo, las cosas empiezan a salir mal, dos helicópteros son derribados y 99 hombres, entre los tripulantes de los helicópteros y la infantería que va a buscarlos, quedan aislados en las calles de Mogadiscio, peleando contra miles de somalíes que acuden desde todos los puntos de la ciudad.
El autor, pese a ser americano, intenta introducir a veces el punto de vista de los somalíes. No lo hace demasiado, pero al menos queda constancia de que lo intentó. La misión se saldó con 16 muertos y 73 heridos, y viendo el relato de los acontecimientos resulta increíble que solo murieran 16. Los somalíes sufrieron unas 1000 bajas, con 500 muertos. El libro repasa los fallos de la cadena de mando, los fallos de los comandantes en el terreno, las miserias y las heroicidades de los soldados y la falta de interés que suscitó esta batalla cuando simultáneamente Boris Yeltsin se defendía de un intento de golpe de estado en Rusia.
La traducción es ATROZ, pues para empezar el traductor confunde ráfaga con disparo, y así leemos que los soldados lanzaban y recibían ráfagas de mortero y lanzagranadas, lo cual nos hace saltar las alarmas constantemente. ( )

Good, fast read. Not sure if it's something West Point should be using as a teaching aid, but it's good for the beach. ( )

This really a very remarkable book, but not necessarily for the reasons one might presume. I read this book from the perspective (1) of someone who had viewed the movie based on the book more than once, and (2) of someone who has read many non-fiction books by both historians and journalists, especially those covering the Iraq-Afghanistan wars. Regarding the first perspective, I found myself very surprised that the very fast-paced, intense movie did little justice to the actual horrors of the event documented in the book. The book establishes that the movie makers pulled a lot of punches in showing how truly horrible the setting was when the U.S. military tried to capture two people in the heart of Somalia's Mogadishu. On a lesser point, the book also shows, as do most books on modern U.S. combat, that America has extraordinarily well trained "foot soldiers" and, very regretfully, leaders not up to the task of leading them properly. And I'm not talking about politicians getting in the way of the generals, nor of the "politics" within the military. I'm thinking more of the weekend home improvement warrior with the best tools one can buy and little of the skills or training to use them to advantage. Regarding my second perspective, this book takes neither of the two most common "war history" approaches. It is not written by an historian, an academic who has pulled together reports and the like to reconstruct the past in an objective way. Neither is it from the perspective of the embedded journalist, also under fire, which is so common in reporting latter day military operations. This author had to go back and piece things together like an historian, but unlike, say, a civil war historian, this person was able to go directly to the people involved on both sides, from multiple levels, and reconstruct both what and why things went the way they did, on a very intimate level. In fact, when the author was done, he didn't reveal what others already knew, he actually pulled the pieces of a puzzle together into a whole that no one person had known before. Finally, I must ask, what idiot would put us in the situation we've been in Iraq and Afghanistan after reading this book? ( )
