Fascinating account adding important details to the story. We read the book in our Military History Book Club 18 years ago and one of the Black Hawk pilots was there (by chance because he saw it advertised in newspaper maybe). He missed the action only because he was flying a general to Greece that day.

Last year we had 2 Pakistan journalists visit our city of Duluth in MN for a week or so. A very special honor. One involved with TV journalism and the other a writer.

Yes, Pakistan was an important ally for some major activities. I had a couple friends on the border of Afghanistan back when the Soviet incursion occurred. Another had been in Kabul with the country fell.

Write on.
