“SFC Joe Kapacziewski and his wife, Kim, tell their incredible story of perseverance and determination over ten years of war. Joe's personal courage in overcoming the loss of his leg and returning to combat to lead soldiers is phenomenal. For over 200 years, men and women like Joe and Kim have made this nation great.” ―General Ray Odierno
“Military buffs will relish this fast-paced account of youthful yearnings for military service, brutal Ranger training, and page after page of camaraderie, horseplay, grim humor, and vivid nuts-and-bolts action. Even readers lukewarm to military memoirs will admire the fierce dedication required to be the first Ranger to go to war with a prosthetic limb.” ―Publishers Weekly
“A bold, raw, and authentic account of unparalleled intestinal fortitude of an American Ranger that grips you like a flying arm bar. Destined to be the defining work of American warrior spirit in the War on Terror era. Make no mistake, the U.S. Army Rangers made Joe Kap a killer man―nobody offers apologies or excuses, it’s what Rangers have done for centuries.” ―Dalton Fury, New York Times bestselling author of Kill Bin Laden and Black Site
“Sergeant Kap is living proof that all Special Operations men are cut from the same cloth regardless of branch of service. Kap's decision to serve alongside his fellow Rangers after having his leg amputated is an incredible story of determination. Back in the Fight will force people to reevaluate what's truly possible in their own lives. The exemplary lessons in this book are something every American should read about. I'm going to make sure my own children read his story.” ―Brandon Webb, New York Times bestselling author of The Red Circle and editor-in-chief of SOFREP.com

Our SOF Wounded, Injured or Ill are remarkable human beings in every respect. The most seriously Wounded, Injured or Ill - those folks I worked with daily for four years - take being an elite Soldier, Sailor, Marine or Airman to new heights where courage and compassion are concerned.
Their spouses and families demonstrate no less of a need, a wish, a desire and a burning goal to "Never Ever Quit" when it comes to meaningful recovery, rehabilitation and a "New Normal" and new life.
SFC Kapacziewski's story is well written, well presented and its message is clear. Never give up Hope and never leave a fallen comrade, to include yourself, behind.
The author's story is but one of thousands to date of our Wounded/Injured/Ill setting the example as to what it takes to "Get back into the fight" and stay there. Joe's story is the same story as is Ranger Jordan Bressler's...Ranger Steven Walter's...Ranger Ben Rye's...Ranger Chip Bryant's...Ranger Victor Sassoon's and Ranger Leroy Petry's (MOH).
And each of these heroes and Wounded Warriors has a counterpart in the Special Forces/SEAL/MARSOF/ARSOF communities whose stories are equally both legendary and motivational.
With all the "I love me - I'm so badass" books we've seen to date from a segment of the SOF community "Back In The Fight" is a refreshing, welcome and needed book that presents the best we have to offer in terms of that unique spirit in a Warrior and in the Warrior family that refuses to just lay down and die.
It's a "Commander's Library" addition to my bookshelve and should be to yours.

All Americans owe every servicemen and women our greatest appreciation we can offer them. Kimberly your added touch to this story was perfect. It truly makes the book a good read for women and men. Also thank you both for your continued support of Operation One Voice..... Tom, Jr.
Read this account of how to come to personal life decisions and you can apply the methods to your own challenges. Joseph is a winner. He tells a story of commitment and ingenuity that should be required reading for anyone trying to find their path forward.
This is far more than a war hero's story.

Well written. While the narrative is bifurcated, shifting from Joe's to his wife Kim's point of view and back again, it gave the story depth to see the spouse's perspective. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Carrie Morgan
