WITH MY SHIELD: An Army Ranger in Somalia
First-hand account tells the 1993 story of how US Army Rangers were able to stand together and prevail against incredible odds. It provides a perspective of an Army Ranger fighting on the ground, combined with professional military analysis, as part of a special operations task force sent to Mogadishu, Somalia.
During the raid, following the initial dangerous fast rope insertion and subsequent capture of a group of Aideed's lieutenants, one of the Task Force Black Hawk helicopters is shot down and Lechner and his comrades are soon caught up in the fiercest combat involving US forces since the Vietnam War. In the middle of the hostile city, deep in the enemy's stronghold, the small group of Rangers and special operators now find themselves fighting not only to rescue the downed helicopter's crewmen, but also to save their own lives.
