"History Personified"

May 13, 2016

On today's episode, Phil speaks with renowned author Mark Bowden regarding the conclusion of the Battle of Mogadishu, which was the basis for the book/movie "Black Hawk Down." In part one last week, we talked about the background of the battle, what led the U.S. into becoming involved in Somalia, the situation that President Bill Clinton inherited from President George H.W. Bush, and what went wrong in the fight. On this week's episode, we go over the conclusion of the battle, the aftermath, and Mark's involvement in the blockbuster movie, "Black Hawk Down."
