W.Y. Boyd Literary Award for Excellence in Military Fiction
Truly a war novel for the New World Order. The book is set in Somalia during the U.S. involvement in Operation Restore Hope in 1991–1992. The harsh realities of modern warfare’s role of the military as peacekeepers are shown in a setting devoid of all forms of a national government. Chaos reigns and the Marines of a Recon Unit struggle trying to feed the starving people of Mogadishu while surviving in a lawless environment controlled by ruthless warlords.
