Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Bruised at head and tail. Leans slightly. Pages lightly age-tanned.
Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “Little-known, multi-skilled and astonishingly brave, the PJs’ (pararescue jumper) primary mission is the rescue of pilots shot down behind enemy lines. These are the unsung heroes who swim through monster-sized waves or who dangle precariously over raging seas. It was Jack Brehm who coordinated the rescue efforts that were chronicled in the bestselling book “The Perfect Storm”. PJs train to recover victims in any kind of desperate situation, anywhere in the world. They train on high mountain ranges in temperatures below freezing, in scuba gear deep beneath the ocean, and in the hottest driest deserts. They are highly skilled paramedics yet they also have to know how to operate a machine gun from a helicopter door. The book not only tells the story of Jack’s life but also shares the stories of fellow PJs, living and dead, who made careers of saving apparently doomed lives, at huge risk to themselves.”
