Author(s): Jack Brehm
Pararescue Jumpers, an elite American military unit, are skilled paramedics, can recover victims from just about anywhere, and know how to use a machine gun from a helicopter door. This book follows Brehm and others at PJ school, and at home, in 1978 to 2001. Daring missions are detailed in full.
Senior Master Sergeant Jack Brehm is a member of the Pararescue Jumpers, America's most elite military unit formed after World War Two to rescue troops behind enemy lines and in peacetime, civilians in danger around the world. They recover victims from deserts to the high seas and are highly skilled paramedics who also know how to operate a machine gun from a helicopter door. Brehm relives his daring missions in a tale that makes for action-adventure at its compelling best.
