Take your war games to the dusty, trash-strewn streets of Mogadishu in the early 1990s, where the elite soldiers of America's Task Force Ranger battled against the militia gangs of Mohamed Farrah Aidid and other Somali warlords. Containing a detailed historical background, twenty scenarios, and orders of battle for all of the main participants, Day of the Rangers gives players everything they need to fight a one-off battle or to run a series of interconnected games charting the United States' and United Nations' missions in Somalia. From rounding up cattle rustlers to rescuing the crew of a downed Black Hawk helicopter, this book offers a host of tactical challenges for Force on Force players.
