Publisher Comments:

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 PJs, as well as to the courageous men and women who fly them where they have to go, often under enemy fire, allowed Hirsh to uncover incredible stories of courage.

Synopsis:

From award-winning journalist and combat veteran Hirsh comes an inside story of the Air Force's pararescue operations in Afghanistan. "A white-knuckle experience."--Robert Mason, author of "Chickenhawk." Photos & illustrations.

When a book about military special forces comes recommended to you by some one "in" military special forces ( in this case a true pararescueman) then it must be good! This is a "no BS assessment" of everything you wanted to know and everything that you did not want to know about the real Pararescuemen!
