by Mark Bowden. Any of you guys read the book? Lots of details about the Rangers and birds over Mogideshu, Somalia. Seems like a good book as I am half way thru it. Anyone been there and read the book? Looked like real hot firefights at times. steady

Great book. Checkout the official web site. They many more pixs and maps. A lot of real interesting stuff. http://www.philly.com/packages/somalia/nov16/default16.asp Oh yes, while you are there check out the definition of a CAR15, in the GLOSSARY section. They call "CAR-15 - Colt Automatic Rifle 15, an automatic weapon......" we all know that the "C" it stands for 'collapsible' stock.

I read it. Good Book. I am a little apprehensive about hollywood getting their mits on the story, though. All the World's Finest! http://www.Lightfighter.com

Love the slang in the book. SP "skinny popper" (MP5), and "bullet magnet" (humVees)! Maybe I will get thru with it in a couple days. Lots of shooting, and weapons. Lots of damage to folks.
