A gripping account describes the rescue operations, trauma medicine, and combat support conducted by the U.S. Air Force's Pararescue Jumpers (PJs) in Afghanistan. Narrator Corey Snow does an admirable job navigating the listener through the technical details and military jargon. He captures the complexity of the PJs’ skills, equipment, training, and missions without overdramatizing the material. Listeners gain an appreciation of the PJ community as Snow brings the text alive by way of the bits of dialogue interspersed throughout the mission anecdotes. His solid, steady tempo provides consistency to the accounts of PJ resourcefulness in upgrading their barracks, surviving their training, and accomplishing their missions. Listeners will feel embedded with these Special Forces soldiers. K.C.R. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2013]
