Description

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.

Customer Reviews

None Braver

This book was a total disappointment! The author begins by a smug comment when being asked why he was traveling to Afghanistan. He clearly does not understand military protocol. He was a reporter in Vietnam and from this book it appears he learned nothing of the importance of the security required during war. My thanks go out to the brave men and woman ( PJs) however the author in my opinion spent morel time on trivial items such as his observation that some of the quarters were air conditioned. Save your money. This book is TERRIBLE.
