Columbia, SC, July 30, 2018 – Panteao is happy to announce the release of the newly remastered 25th anniversary edition of Battle of the Black Sea.

In this three hour exclusive interview, MSG Paul Howe (US Army retired) gives an in-depth look at what led up to and what occurred during and after the battle in Mogadishu on October 3 and 4, 1993. He talks about the living conditions soldiers endured in Mogadishu, the UN Joint Forces stationed there, the media, decisions that were made by our military, the search for Aidid, planning for the mission, the mission assets, Operation Gothic Serpent including the downed Black Hawks, the convoy, staying overnight, and the extraction the next day.

    Here’s a great interview with Tom Satterly, another Delta vet from this operation. The primary point of the interview is about PTSD and his non-profit foundation but there is a large portion of the interview dedicated to his experience in Somalia.

    i’d like to see a documentary about the operation to recover Shughart and Gordon and get Durant released. up until the retreat to the stadium the somali casualty count was approx. 1500, the recovery operation resulted in 3500-5000 dead militia. untold story.
