Durant õ 6 Summary Piloting a US Army Special Operations Blackhawk over Somalia Michael Durant was shot down with a rocket propelled grenade. Disclosure Mike Durant is a personal friendThe truth behind the movie Black Hawk Down with the incredible true story by Mike DurantIf you saw the movie Black Hawk Down you may recall the name of the man that they would not leave behind Army Chief Warrant Officer 4 Michael Durant If you watched national news broadcasts in October 1993 you saw the battered face of Michael Durant America watched with shock as he was dragged through the streets of MogadishuThe hostilities in Somalia have been debated in articles books documentaries and now finally in the words of Mike Durant Durant explained to me that the movie ends with him in captivity He thought Wow many people are wondering What happened to that guy I ve had a lot of people ask me How did you get out of there and what happened to you In the Company of Heroes pays homage to the men who served with him in Somalia Plain and simple I can tell you that the only reason I m here today is because of Gary and Randy The commando sergeants who came to Mr Durant s aide were posthumously awarded the Medal of HonorIn addition to his captivity in Somalia Mr Durant s book shares a uniue look at the life of the US Special Forces One of the most uniue things is that in special ops you stay together as a unit for a much long period of time than most other military organizations I was in the 160th for 13 years and I served with the same people the whole time So there are stories that go way beyond SomaliaSome of the intriguing behind the scene information about the books is that Mr Durant had to purchase the rights to use the photos of himself The many photos that we often see on cable news networks are copyrighted and he was charged to include them in the book Durant was very pleased that the group AC DC allowed him to use the lyrics to one of their songs without chargeA remarkable story a remarkable man

In The Company Of Heroes

Summary In The Company Of Heroes ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Michael J. Durant õ 6 Summary E tells the story of what he saw how he survived and the courage and heroism that only soldiers under fire could ever know. I had been looking forward to this book for some time but it didn t live up to my expectations If you re looking for a book about Mike s life as an SOF pilot then this does the job uite well If like myself you re expecting a balanced account of Mike s experience in Somalia you may be let downAbout half the book is taken up with anecdotes and memories that have nothing to do with Somalia That s no big deal as it is still an interesting read but the description on the back cover doesn t provide any indication of the true nature of the book so I felt a bit had Books aren t cheap after all The back cover synopsis does use the word torture which undoubtedly increased sales significantly Although Mike was badly injured and wasn t given five star treatment and I don t envy his position one little bit he didn t have electrodes connected to his genitals either Again misleading and typical sensationalism It s a pity to let the facts get in the way of a good story I guessAnother thing that annoyed me was the over use of totally crap similes Hartov who wrote this with or for Mike lets the side down badly with this Perhaps he was story telling for the lowest common denominator and maximum sales It is a shame Hartov s audience wasn t treated to a impressive display of descriptive talentFurther in the introduction Hartov makes an issue out of the thorough research performed and how Mike s story was checked with others involved even to the extent of going to Somalia and talking to his captors This book would have benefited significantly if the memory lane stuff had been reduced some is useful to set the scene and the perspective of others directly involved had been included After all US forces underestimated the enemy and got badly bitten Mike was shot down captured and released Several people were killed trying to get him out unsuccessfully I am not so sure that this is something Americans should be beating chests and waving flags about It seems to me that including a Somalian perspective would have added real balance and given a accurate depiction of the realities of the incident A small effort along these lines was made with the inclusion of the letter from the wife of a Delta operator and to me that was one of the most valuable parts of the storyAll things considered it was a pretty good read and I salute Mike s bravery and resolve Fortunately and correctly Mike doesn t put himself forward as a hero rather he as indicated in the title gives full credit to his fellow soldiers But I strongly suspect another author not Hartov could have done a far better job and presented a insightful account An opportunity missed I think

Michael J. Durant õ 6 Summary

Summary In The Company Of Heroes ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Michael J. Durant õ 6 Summary On October 3 1993 With devastating injuries he was taken prisoner by a Somali warlord With revealing insight and emotion h. This was for the most part an interesting straightforward account of Michael Durant s time in the military focusing primarily on the downing of his Blackhawk over Mogadishu Somalia and his time spent in captivity as a prisoner of the Somali warlord Mohamed Aidid What I liked about the book was the rather no nonsense clarity of it The big picture especially America s involvement in Somalia was except for Durant s negative opinions regarding the Clinton administration omitted This was a good approach because the small story of his struggles and triumphs are believably heroic I find the psychology of the military aviator fascinating my favorite book on this topic Chickenhawk is about the helicopters in Vietnam In that book Robert Mason s tortured insights lift the book into literature In contrast Durant s perfectionism his confident sense of self and his competitive personality are not nearly as interesting to me My only beef which is solely personal is that large swaths of this memoir were extremely dry The reason is the extreme detail regarding the various programs in the US military the mechanics of aviation and the sheer number of acronyms Accurate I have no doubt Compelling Not so much
