Publisher's Summary

From award-winning journalist and combat veteran Michael Hirsh comes the thrilling inside story of the Air Force's pararescue operations in Afghanistan. The first journalist to be embedded with an Air Force combat unit in the war on terrorism, Hirsh flew from Moody Air Force Base, Georgia, with the 71st Rescue Squadron to their expeditionary headquarters at a secret location in Central Asia.

Unparalleled access to the pararescue jumpers - or PJs - as well as to the courageous men and women who fly them where they have to go, often under enemy fire, allowed Michael Hirsh to uncover incredible stories of courage. Among them: the drama of a plane crash at 10,000 feet in the Hindu Kush mountains, where PJs climb with 100-pound packs through chest-deep snow to rescue the crew; the tension of an unprecedented nighttime combat parachute jump into the middle of an Afghan minefield; and the heartbreak during Operation Anaconda, when seven American fighting men die, including the first PJ killed in combat since Vietnam.

Good story, rough narration.

narration was not easy to get through, and the cadence of the narration at times was awkwardly fast.

Not my cup of tea

Actually made me think PJs don't do crap. I've never seen it take someone so long to say absolutely nothing. I like action. This had none. And what it did, had nothing to do with PJs.

Ok but not great

Author was whiny at times regarding his lack of access. Went after GOs for not talking to the press. Probably a super annoying person. Reader used a high pitch for quotes- very odd.

Good insight into a PJs tour of duty.

Amazing tales of the "tinder boxes" US troops are involved in around the world. Operation Anaconda was shameful and even criminal in the way it was handled by command staff,
