  • In the Company of Heroes

    If you are a fan of the book Blackhawk Down this is a must read. This was the fastest I have ever read a book in my life. I knocked it off in 2 1/2 days, it was tough to put down.

    It covers Nightstalker Mike Durants time in captivity in Somalia after his Blackhawk was shot down. It is a heart wrenching tale of one man who never gave up his will to live and the little things that kept him alive.
    It also covers his time in Korea as a Medi Vac pilot as well as Panama and Desert Storm.
    Mike Durants survival training, cunning instincts and pure luck all contributed to his survival.
    I certainly can say this is one of the better books I have read.

    I have read this book and totally agree with you Chad, a great book and well worth reading. I liked the style of the book as well, telling his life story in a series of flash backs (IIRC).
