* MilitaryMaverick: Special Forces units. The book details how these could cause friction with more conventional units... which ended up having some negative consequences in the field.

* MissionCreep: The original incident in Mogadishu was a TropeNamer for Mission Creep and it's tragically illustrated in a film about soldiers finding a reality that severely complicates and compromises their brief.

* MissionCreep: The original incident in Mogadishu film is set during the Battle of Mogadishu, which was a TropeNamer for Mission Creep when journalist Jim Hoagaland described the term when covering the conflict, and it's tragically illustrated in a film about soldiers finding a reality that severely complicates and compromises their brief. The film displays dramatically the manner in which a seemingly normal mission quickly gets severely complicated.

Added DiffLines:

* NoHarmRequirement: Both the book and the movie detail an effort by Army Rangers and Airborne Ops to capture alive two EliteMooks of a Somali warlord. The good news: they bag the two objectives intact. The bad news: Airborne unit Six-One goes down, and a simple extraction mission goes FromBadToWorse.

Added DiffLines:

* CoolHelmet: While the Rangers wear the US Army's standard issue helmet, the Delta operators and the Air Force pararescuemen all wear sleeker looking hockey-style helmets. Ultimately subverted in the source material, where it's noted that the special helmets offered no protection from bullets or shrapnel - which likely contributed to at least one Delta member's death.
