Piloting a U.S. Army Special Operations Blackhawk over Somalia, Michael Durant was shot down with a rocket-propelled grenade on October 3, 1993. With devastating injuries, he was taken prisoner by a Somali warlord. With revealing insight and emotion, he tells the story of what he saw, how he survived, and the courage and heroism that only soldiers under fire could ever know.The pilot didna#39;t respond, but he nosed the Apache down and sped away to catch up with the flock. ... Guys in the unit laughed about his strange habits, such as taking out his bicycle at midnight and riding it up and down the runways at Fort ... The thin strip of beach grew thicker in the distance, and I could see the black runways of Rio Hato and the clusters of PDF buildings and barracks on the base.
