Críticas:

For most of the hundred-plus years of manned flight, aircraft have been used in combat and tens of thousands have been lost. When a military aircraft goes down there has always been the desire, but not always the means, to rescue the survivors. George Galdorisi and Tom Phillips have provided a comprehensive, and well-written history of the development of combat rescue up to the present, including dramatic accounts of rescues, among them many never before revealed. 'Leave No Man Behind' is a story of heroism which should appeal to a broad spectrum of readers; historians, serving military, and those who love a good aviation story. --Norman Polmar, author of 'Aircraft Carriers: A History of Carrier Aviation and Its Impact on World Events'

An important and comprehensive work on that most American of military imperatives going in harm's way to get one of our own--Dick Couch--Combat search and rescue -- the ability to save downed pilots -- becomes more important each time the United States uses aircraft in combat. As enemy defenses improve, it also becomes more difficult, and the technology involved becomes more complex. Yet this story has never really been told before. Leave No Man Behind shows how attempts to rescue pilots began as early as World War I, and how modern systems have worked, both in theory and in difficult practice. It offers a unique combination of operational experience and technical description--Dr Norma Friedman--Leave No Man Behind is a solid piece of history. Starting with the birth of military aviation itself, it tells the story, almost 100 years in length, of the efforts that have been put forth to develop and use rescue forces to recover downed aviators. Focusing primarily on well-documented vignettes from conflicts as recent as Iraqi Freedom, it is the story of sacrifice, valor, and heroic airmen who go forth so that, others may live. Well written, well told, well done! --Darryl Whitman

George Galdorisi and Thomas Phillips provide an account of combat search and rescue (CSAR) from World War I to the conflict in Iraq. This is the story of the unheralded men and women who fly the dangerous missions to retrieve downed airmen and soldiers stranded behind enemy lines. Chronicling nearly 100 years of CSAR history, the authors include stories of previously classified missions and several Medal-of-Honor winning operations in an extensive look at this little known facet of military operations. The books also addresses the ongoing debate of whether the tendency to cut CSAR at the end of a conflict is wise. Without an existing infrastructure, it takes far too long to get these units operational again when the need arises. --The Register-Pajaronian

Reseña del editor:

Beginning with the birth of combat aircraft in World War I and the early attempts to rescue warriors trapped behind enemy lines, Leave No Man Behind chronicles in depth nearly one hundred years of combat search and rescue (CSAR). All major U.S. combat operations from World War II to the early years of the Iraq War are covered, including previously classified missions and several Medal-of-Honor-winning operations. Authors George Galdorisi and Tom Phillips (both veteran U.S. Navy helicopter pilots) highlight individual acts of heroism while telling the big-picture story of the creation and development of modern CSAR.

Although individual missions have their successes and failures, CSAR, as an institution, would seem beyond reproach, an obvious necessity. The organizational history of CSAR, however, is not entirely positive. The armed services, particularly the U.S. Air Force and Navy, have a tendency to cut CSAR at the end of a conflict, leaving no infrastructure prepared for the next time that the brave men and women of our armed forces find themselves behind enemy lines.

The final chapter has not yet been written for U.S. combat search and rescue, but in view of the life-saving potential of these forces, an open and forthright review of U.S. military CSAR plans and policies is long overdue. Beyond the exciting stories of heroic victories and heartrending defeats, Leave No Man Behind stimulates debate on this important subject.
