Soldier in Black Hawk Down

Black Hawk Down
Leave no man behind

Black Hawk Down is director Ridley Scott's adaptation of the true war story as told in Mark Bowden's novel of the same title.

The film takes place in 1993 when the US sent special forces into Somalia to destabilise the government and bring food and humanitarian aid to the starving population.

Using Black Hawk helicopters to lower the soldiers onto the ground, an unexpected attack by Somalian forces brings two of the helicopters down immediately. From there, the US soldiers must struggle to regain their balance while enduring heavy gunfire.
