From the Inside Flap
That Others May Live not only sheds new light on that rescue, it also tells the thrilling story of Jack Brehm's devotion to the PJs, a career choice that transformed him from an aimless kid to an on-call hero. Jack's vivid account reveals not only the dangerous rescues and relentless training he and his fellow PJs endure, but the emotional struggles as well: losing friends, waiting anxiously to be called into action, and trying to keep their families together despite the enormous life-and-death pressures of the job. This book is a compelling and deeply personal story of one man's "ordinary" heroism that is, in reality, extraordinary.

"That Others May Live is not just a great adventure story. Reading about the exploits of the military's elite pararescue jumpers, you can feel deeply the ache of decency, patriotism, service, and honor -- the profound desire to make the world better that shapes the American mythology of altruism."
-- Bob Shacochis, author of The Immaculate Invasion
