The troops were dropped by helicopter deep into the capital city of Mogadishu to capture two top lieutenants of a Somali warlord. The resulting action lead to a large and drawn-out firefight between the Rangers and hundreds of Somali gunmen. The battle led to the destruction of two U.S. Black Hawk helicopters and to the heroic efforts by various Rangers to get to them out. Centers on Sgt. Eversmann commanding one Ranger unit pinned down by the street fighting, to Warrant Officer Durant who was only survivor of the second black hawk crash site and subsequently captured. Lt. Col.
