In the most violent firefight since Vietnam, elite U.S. Army Rangers and Delta Force members were pinned down in 1993 on Mogadishu streets by Somali warlord Mohammed Farah Aidid's forces.

"Frontline" investigates a peacekeeping mission gone wrong and a deadly ambush still haunting U.S. military and foreign policy. A day later, eighteen U.S. soldiers were dead, seventy-five wounded, and the U.S. response to humanitarian crises had changed forever.

("Frontline", Season 16, Episode 13)
