A great read. I literally couldn't put it down.
-Joseph L. Galloway
We Were Soldiers Once...And Young

The action is heart-pumping, heart-wrenching, and the story will absolutely hold you in its grip from the first page to the last. It is being there without the bullets.

Above and Beyond is Jim Morris's masterpiece, an epic tragedy of a man who dared all, and either won or lost all, depending on your point of view. Me, I think he won.

"It is great news that Jim Morris, the most accomplished and admired of the many fine writers to emerge from the elite ranks of the US Army Special Forces, is back with a new novel. All of us who have admired Morris' previous journalism, fiction, and his classic memoir, War Story, are sure to enjoy Above and Beyond. And readers who have never had the pleasure of reading his work before are in for a special treat. This is military literature at its finest!"

"Above and Beyond" is a book one cannot read in one night because there is so much to ponder. Still, you can't put it down. So be prepared for a long night, then.
--Mark Berent
