This is the true story of one medevac team and their work in Afghanistan. They work near the area known as the Valley of Death. It was Dustoff 7-3's job to get the injured soldiers back to the base. After they were checked and treated, the soldiers then went to the hospital. Each team worked with precision timing. The crew consisted of four soldiers and they went about their work quickly and quietly. The area was known for all of the action it saw. The story is real and raw.
First, let me address the author's statement,"I am not a hero." He's right. they are not heroes, they are angels with nerves of steel. I felt as if I was right there beside Mr. Sabiston as they raced from one injured soldier to another. Mr. Sabiston grabs you from the first page and I was yelling for more of the story. Solid writing and making sure it's in-your-face, Mr. Sabiston does a fantastic job of pulling back the curtain and giving us a REAL peek inside. Having this book on your shelf will show others just how informed you really are. Get this one and some tissues because you are going to need them. This book was eye-opening for me. I had no idea the soldiers were working under such conditions.
I found no issues with this one.
I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it gave real a chance to see the inner workings.
