Book Description

March 20 2012 Force on Force (Book 5)
In the early 90s, Somalia was a country in chaos - warlords carved out their own territories, enforcing their will through militia gangs, civil war raged, and famine compounded the situation. As a joint US-UN mission struggled to maintain order, the warlords began to unite behind Mohamed Farrah Aidid, who was to proclaim himself President of Somalia and embark upon a campaign to force the peacekeepers out of the country. Operations against Aidid and his strongholds intensified, culminating in the famous Operation Gothic Serpent, and the rescue mission to save a downed Black Hawk helicopter carried out by US Rangers and Delta Force operatives. Day of the Rangers, the latest companion for Force on Force, provides wargamers with all the background, orders of battle, and scenarios they need to immerse themselves in the epic battle for Mogadishu.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great resource for modern wargaming May 9 2012
By Mark A Henderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ambush Alley Games and Osprey Publishing deliver a thorough update and expansion of the original AAG scenario book, Day of the Rangers.

Overall, the new book is clearly organized and well-written with good photography and illustrations. It opens with a brief overview providing historical background on the Somali conflict. Special rules for barricades, fast roping and helicopter attacks add to the setting without unnecessarily complicating the core Force on Force ruleset. From there, we get straight into the scenarios.

Day of the Rangers includes 20 game scenarios covering more than 70 pages. That's twice as many scenarios as the original supplement. More than half are directly based on historical events, allowing you to recreate battles like the last stand at Super Six-Four. Each scenario follows a consistent format with a detailed map and information on force composition, missions, reinforcements and relevant special rules. Notes on historical outcomes offer welcome context.

An 8-page section on sample unit organizations (fireteams, squads, platoons) follows. U.S. Marines, Rangers and Special Forces get the lion's share of attention. But we're also introduced to other nations of the UN coalition: Belgium, Canada, Italy, Pakistan and Malaysia. Rounding out the book are helpful appendices such as vehicle rules and theater-specific Fog of War cards.

If you're interested in small-unit wargaming in a modern setting, Day of the Rangers sets the bar high in terms of both content and production value. It's definitely a welcome supplement to the Force on Force game system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maalintii Rangers April 17 2012
By C. Faulkner - Published on Amazon.com
This third supplement in Osprey's foray into the field of modern wargaming covers Operation Gothic Serpent, the code name given to the assignment handed to Task Force Ranger in Somalia, 1993. Included are orders of battle for the Belgian Airborne, Canadian Airborne and Armored Infantry, Italian Airborne, Malaysia, Pakistan, US Marines, the US Army's 10th Mountain and of course, the boys from the 75th Rangers and Delta. Also included are scenarios, both real and fabricated, that allow players to re-fight historical and hypothetical situations that represent the type of conflict being fought during the UN mission in Somalia. And of course, as the title implies, there are also a series of scenarios designed, either as a linked campaign or stand-alone games, to simulate the events of 3 and 4 October, 1993.
