Back in Action Review
The book Back in action by Captain Rozelle is a very well written story about his time spent in the military, and his service in Iraq. There were some very important life messages. Of course there are some good and bad points in the book, as there are in every book. Unfortunately Captain Rozelle was on a mission in Iraq and was in the lead Humvee, and unfortunately got his leg blown off by a land mine while on a mission. Luckily no one else got injured who was under his command. Eventually he was able to fight his way back into the battle. He has had a very military oriented life he was following in his family¿s footsteps. There are many of messages in this book. All of the messages are very important, but the one that most people can relate to is perseverance. The main message of the book that stood out to me the most was perseverance. Perseverance is very obvious while reading. When Captain Rozelle¿s leg was blown off he did not let that stop him he work real hard and ended up working his way back to battle. This part is inspiring to many, to work ones disability to do great things in life. I really liked all the details in the stories. The story kept me wanting to read more and more. Captain Rozelle is a very strong man, not only physical but spiritually as well. This book kept me wanting to read it. It is not terribly hard to read. I would recommend this book for who ever is interested in reading books about military stories, over coming life changing experiences. I did have a few dislikes in this book. My dislike is not huge it was just something that I noticed it didn¿t really bother me, but it was still present in the story no matter what. He seemed to be full of him self. It seemed to be that he was bragging about all of his life¿s accomplishments. Although he seems to be full of him self to remember what he went through he has a right to brag about his accomplishments. He accomplished, and worked his way through what most people would give up on and just accept it. If someone would be going through a hard time loosing a body part this would be a great book. If someone had just gone through something tragic, and was looking for someone that they could look up to and help reach their goal, this book would be a great book to read. I never read books because I don¿t enjoy them, but I did enjoyed this book, I would tell anyone who doesn¿t like to read should check this book out. I would give this book an overall rating of four stars out of five. Overall this book was very well written. It had its good, and bad sides just like any other book. I would definitely recommend this book because it shows how one person can overcome such great odds, and do such great things in their lifetime.Was this review helpful?

Would love to see this on film !
Wow! great story. Made me feel like I was right there next to him every step of the way. How could you not make a film about this one. How often do you hear about someone with such strong will and courage willing to face the enemy again, for a second time, with only one leg. Come on man! Its a no brainer! This is a must read. I loved it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
