This account describes the longest sustained firefight involving American troops since the Vietnam War. On October 3, 1993, a band of U.S. soldiers on a mission in Somalia to capture two lieutenants of a Somali warlord spent a long and terrible night fighting thousands of armed Somalis. By morning, 18 Americans were dead, and more than 70 badly injured.
