More Detail
True story of U.S. Army force in Mogadishu, consisting primarily of U.S. Army Rangers from 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment; Bravo Company, 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta (1st SFOD-D), better known as "Delta Force"; and helicopters from 1st Battalion, 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, attempted to seize two of Aidid's high-echelon lieutenants during a meeting in the city.

Shortly after the assault began, Somali militia and armed civilian fighters managed to down two UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters. The subsequent rescue operation to secure and recover the crews of both helicopters drew the raid, intended to last no more than an hour, into an overnight standoff in the city.

The battle resulted in 18 U.S. deaths, 80 wounded, and 1 helicopter pilot captured among the raid party and rescue forces, including Pakistani and Malaysian troops. American sources estimate between 1,500 and 3,000 Somali casualties, including civilians; SNA forces claim only 315 casualties, with 812 wounded.
