No Man Left Behind
The producers of National Geographic Channel's critically acclaimed "Locked Up Abroad" are behind a series that sheds light on every soldier's worst nightmare: to be trapped in enemy territory. "No Man Left Behind" combines personal testimony with re-enactments and archival footage to tell dramatic stories of modern war heroes who overcame incredible odds in some of the most hostile environments on Earth. Perspective is also provided on how the ever-present battle memories shape the survivors' current lives. The premiere details the deadly 1993 battle in Mogadishu between U.S. forces and Somali militia that inspired a best-selling book and the feature film "Black Hawk Down." Reunited for the first time on camera, the pilot of the downed helicopter and two of the soldiers involved in the battle recount the intense details of one of the most horrific scenes in U.S. military history since the Vietnam War.
