IN THE COMPANY OF HEROES.
Michael J. Durant - Author
Steven Hartov - Author
Michael Durant the captured in Somalia (and who was an integral part of the dramatic story chronicled in Black Hawk Down), tells his personal story of his involvement in the events of October 1993.
His battered face appeared on the cover of Time, Newsweek and U.S. News & World Report to the shock and horror of all Americans. Black Hawk pilot Mike Durant was shot down and taken prisoner during America's biggest firefight since the Vietnam War. Published in the tenth anniversary year of the Somali conflict, this gripping personal account at last tells the world about Durant's harrowing captivity and the heroic deeds of his doomed comrades. And, as readers will discover, Durant proves himself to be nothing less than a hero.
"Michael J. Durant's experience is one of the most harrowing in the history of the American military, and one of the most compelling ever told." ?Mark Bowden, author of Black Hawk Down
"Stunning. It's my objective opinion that Army helicopter pilots, especially Warrant Officer pilots, are some of the best and bravest pilots that ever flew. This book proves it." ?Robert Mason, author of Chickenhawk
"Michael Durant is a genuine hero, and a great American patriot. This is a must-read." ?Gen. Carl Stiner, US Army (Ret.), co-author of Shadow Warriors: Inside the Special Forces
"Hats off to Mike Durant's gripping first-person account of his Somalian combat and captivity. Should be required reading." ?Maj. John Plaster, US Army Special Forces (Ret.), author of SOG: The Secret Wars of America's Commados in Vietnam
