The Golden Hour: The hour immediately following traumatic injury in which medical treatment to prevent irreversible internal damage and optimize the chance of survival is most effective.
SEAL team Polaris is on a reconnaissance mission high in the Hindu Kush mountains of Afghanistan when they’re led into an ambush. The A-10 fighter providing close-air support is shot down and Air Force pararescue jumpers, dispatched to extract the downed pilot, also suffer heavy fire.
As the clock ticks and casualties mount, the PJs join forces with Polaris – facing subzero temperatures, formidable terrain, and entrenched enemies – to rescue the missing pilot and get them all home.
“The violence erupts with extraordinary narrative force. ...a grippingly realistic rendering of military combat...A richly synoptic peek into a military operation.” – Kirkus Reviews
