    Task Force Ranger was cre­ated in Au­gust 1993, and de­ployed to So­ma­lia in Sep­tem­ber. It con­sisted of var­i­ous elite spe­cial op­er­a­tions units from Army, Air Force and Navy spe­cial ser­vices: U.S. Army Rangers from Bravo Com­pany, 3rd Bat­tal­ion 75th Ranger Reg­i­ment; C Squadron, 1st Spe­cial Forces Op­er­a­tional De­tach­ment-Delta (1st SFOD-D), bet­ter known as "Delta Force"; he­li­copters flown by 1st Bat­tal­ion, 160th Spe­cial Op­er­a­tions Avi­a­tion Reg­i­ment; Air Force Com­bat Con­trollers; Air Force Parares­cue­men; and Navy SEALs. As a multi-dis­ci­pli­nary joint spe­cial forces op­er­a­tion, Task Force Ranger re­ported to Joint Spe­cial Op­er­a­tions Com­mand, led by Major Gen­eral William F. Gar­ri­son. On 3 Oc­to­ber 1993, Task Force Ranger began an op­er­a­tion that in­volved trav­el­ing from their com­pound on the city's out­skirts to the cen­ter with the aim of cap­tur­ing the lead­ers of the Habr Gidr clan, led by Mo­hamed Far­rah Aidid. The as­sault f...

    In Jan­u­ary 1991, So­ma­lian Pres­i­dent Mo­hammed Siad Barre was over­thrown by a coali­tion of op­pos­ing clans, pre­cip­i­tat­ing the So­mali Civil War. The So­mali Na­tional Army con­cur­rently dis­banded, and some for­mer sol­diers re­con­sti­tuted as ir­reg­u­lar re­gional forces or joined the clan militias. The main rebel group in the cap­i­tal Mo­gadishu was the United So­mali Con­gress (USC), which later di­vided into two armed fac­tions: one led by Ali Mahdi Muham­mad, who be­came pres­i­dent, and the other by Mo­hamed Far­rah Aidid. In total, there were four op­po­si­tion groups that com­peted for po­lit­i­cal con­trol – the USC, So­mali Sal­va­tion De­mo­c­ra­tic Front (SSDF), So­mali Pa­tri­otic Move­ment (SPM) and So­mali De­mo­c­ra­tic Move­ment (SDM). A cease­fire was agreed in June 1991, but failed to hold. A fifth group, the So­mali Na­tional Move­ment (SNM), de­clared in­de­pen­dence in the north­west por­tion of So­ma­lia later in June. The SNM re­named this un­...

    The size and or­ga­ni­za­tional struc­ture of the So­mali mili­tia forces in­volved in the bat­tle are not known in de­tail. In all, be­tween 2,000–4,000 reg­u­lar fac­tion mem­bers are be­lieved to have par­tic­i­pated, al­most all of whom be­longed to Aidid's So­mali Na­tional Al­liance. They drew largely from his Habar Gidir Hawiyeclan, who bat­tled U.S. troops start­ing 12 July 1993. The So­mali Na­tional Al­liance (SNA) was formed 14 Au­gust 1992. It began as the United So­mali Con­gress...

    After the bat­tle, the bod­ies of sev­eral of the con­flict's U.S. ca­su­al­ties (Black Hawk Super 64's crewmem­bers and their de­fend­ers, Delta Force sol­diers MSG Gor­don and SFC Shughart) were dragged through Mo­gadishu's streets by crowds of local civil­ians and SNA forces. Through ne­go­ti­a­tion and threats to the Habr Gidr clan lead­ers by Spe­cial Envoy for So­ma­lia, Robert B. Oak­ley, all the bod­ies were even­tu­ally re­cov­ered. The bod­ies were re­turned in poor con­di­tion, one with a sev­ered head. Michael Du­rant was re­leased after 11 days of cap­tiv­ity. On the beach near the base, a memo­r­ial was held for those who were killed in combat.

    In 1999, writer Mark Bow­den pub­lished the book Black Hawk Down: A Story of Mod­ern War, which chron­i­cles the events that sur­rounded the bat­tle. The book was based on his se­ries of columns for The Philadel­phia In­quirerabout the bat­tle and the men who fought. Black Hawk pilot Michael Du­rant told his story of being shot down and cap­tured by a mob of So­ma­lis in his 2003 book In the Com­pany of He­roes. In 2005, Staff Sergeant Matthew Evers­mann, a U.S. Army Ranger and Chalk Four's leader dur­ing the bat­tle, com­piled sev­eral dif­fer­ent ac­counts into a book called The Bat­tle of Mogadishu. In 2008 Lieu­tenant Gen­eralWilliam G. "Jerry" Boykin, for­mer Delta Force Com­man­der and Deputy Under Sec­re­tary of De­fense for In­tel­li­gence in­cluded a sec­tion on his ac­count of the bat­tle in his book "Never Sur­ren­der: A Sol­dier's Jour­ney to the Cross­roads of Faith and Free­dom".
