Watching Black Hawk Down

Probably the most intense war movie ever -- it reminds me of the opening and final battles of Saving Private Ryan, except the whole movie is that way.

Interestingly no one has done a comprehensive wargame of this battle as far as I know.


  1. Lock'n'Load has a game on this incident.
    A Day of Heroes. L'n'L series game with squares instead of hexes.

  2. Lock'n Load Publishing has published Lock 'n Load: A Day of Heroes - - and it covers exactly the battle depicted in Black Hawk Down

  3. Hi, I agree with you about the movie. It's one of the best war movies that I have ever seen. I don't known any wargame but I know some miniature wargames rules to play this conflict and others in the 20th and 21th centuries (Ambush Alley, Dogs of War, ...).

  4. The only one I've ever seen is "Lock 'n Load: A Day of Heroes" from Lock 'n Load Publishing.

    A great movie - the books is really good, too.

  5. I'll have to check Day of Heroes out. Sounds interesting. Has anyone played it?
