display_description When an antitank mine tore off Captain David Rozelle's right foot, the warriors of jihad in Iraq thought they had neutralized one of their most determined foes. They were wrong. Refusing to let his injury stop him, he soon returned to Iraq as commander of an armored cavalry troop. In Back in Action, Rozelle speaks with brisk frankness about his postamputation battles and the gritty determination that carried him through it all. It's an astonishing story of courage, determination, heroism, and devotion to duty overcoming all obstacles.
