"A true story by Michael J. Durant, Chief Warrant Officer 4 (Ret.). Piloting a U.S. Army Special Operations Blackhawk, Durant was shot down and captured on October 3, 1993, in the battle depicted in Mark Bowden's bestselling book Black Hawk Down. Although saved by two valiant but doomed Delta Force operators from being town apart, Durant became a prisoner of Somali warlord Mohammed Aidid --- the man responsible for prolonging starvation in his country by hijacking United Nations food shipments. U.S. policy makers had determined that capturing Aidid was the only way to restore order. The simple snatch-and-grab plan, named Operation Gothic Serpent, turned into the biggest U.S. firefight since the Vietnam War. Durant became one of the most famous POWs of all time while held captive by a seemingly backward yet media-savvy people....Durant's experience as a prisoner in Somalia grew increasingly bizarre over time, crystallizing a clash of cultures by turns frightening, melancholy, hilarious, and strangely familiar. Revealing never-before-told stories with the incisive thought and the emotion of one who was there, In the Company of Heroes is one man's unforgettable true story of going to hell and making it back alive."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
