Mogadishu Diaries 1992-1993: Bloodlines

Ten months before Blackhawk Down, US Marines launched its first major offensive against Mogadishu’s militias.

Stills from the VHS tape capturing the US Marine Air/Ground assault are featured in this book. Actual footage of the USMC Takedown of Aidid’s Safehouse maybe seen on YouTube: username:smokehouseuk
