        The Modern War Institute at West Point has a variety of talks.

        This particular one deals with Mogadishu, 25 yrs later, with 3 soldiers who were present, from a LTG to a LT, to an E6.

        The last 5 minutes deals with the lessons learned.

            Given the title, I thought this was going to be about Minneapolis.

              Just received it. Written in 2011, interesting preface – “I’ve come to the conclusion that our society or way of life will not come to an end because of a natural disaster or at the hands of a superior enemy, but rather through a lack of leadership or initiative on our part. Leadership is what has made our country great, and what will break our country if enacted poorly.”

              Rather foretelling, considering current events.

                It’s been at least 5-6 years since I read it. I probably need to dust it off and read it again.
