I don't know if anyone has posted this, but there is a copy of the book online. It is really cool, hyperlinks to glossary, photos, video, audio, etc. This is how the Internet was ment to be used! Check it out at: [url]www.philly.com/packages/somalia[/url] I have just started reading it, very impressed so far.

I read the book not too long ago. I really enjoyed it...well written. And I recommend it. Now that the movie is planned for this winter, I'm interested to see that too. I'm just hoping Hollywood doesn't screw up the movie like they have so many other good books. Usually if I hear a movie is coming out, I'll wait to read the book after the movie so I can enjoy the movie a little. - Robbie

Yup, that's where I read the book--too poor to buy a hardcopy. Also visit [url]http://www.cinemayhem.com/blackhawkdown/[/url] for updates on the movie. The discussion board is also frequent by people who were in Somalia and those involved in the Oct 3 fight.

I had no idea that the American soldiers killed nearly 1,000 somalis. 17 vs. 1,000 sounds like an ass whipping.

I just finished it today (at work). Made time today and put my phone on DND. WOW!! That was amazing! Now I understand what everyone is talking about. I had to get up and take several walking breaks to regain composure. Already downloaded the trailer awhile back. I don't know why, but everytime I watch the trailer I get teary eyed. Weird. Must be the music, yea, thats it. Can't wait for the movie.

While shooting at a local match, I got to speak with a Little Bird pilot who participated in the filming of the movie. He seemed impressed with the product they were trying to deliver and spoke highly of the entire enterprise. Based on his comments, I'm really looking forward to the movie without the fears of Hollywood butchery.
