David Kenyon Webster's memoir is a clear-eyed, emotionally charged chronicle of youth, camaraderie, and the chaos of war. Relying on his own letters home and recollections he penned just after his discharge, Webster gives a firsthand account of life in E Company, 101st Airborne Division, crafting a memoir that resonates with the immediacy of a gripping novel.

There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book is addictive since Peter Clines somehow can make the suspense hang from beginning to end, and he keeps adding mysteries.
The concept behind the story is readily accepted, and the story keeps building up, and somehow you suddenly sit and say to yourself: "That makes sense", even though the story keeps spiralling in a different direction, than you might have expected.

On October 3, 2005, Kapacziewski and his soldiers were coming to the end of their tour in Northern Iraq when their convoy was attacked by enemy fighters. A grenade fell through the gunner’s hatch and exploded, shattering Kapacziewski’s right leg below the knee, damaging his right hip, and severing a nerve and artery in his right arm. He endured more than forty surgeries, but his right leg still wasn’t healing as he had hoped, so in March 2007, Kapacziewski chose to have it amputated.

Would you listen to Back in the Fight again? Why?

Probably not, since the story is unique first time you lkisten to it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Back in the Fight?

I would say the recovery phase, which could have been described more in detail, and should have had more room in the book.

What does Johnny Heller and Jo Anna Perrin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

An experience of hearing the actual people speaking.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not so much

Any additional comments?

Good story, which should have been longer and filled with more stories from his deployments.
The amputation and the recovery afterwards was too short in my opinion, and should have contained more wins and defeats.
But besides that a good and warm book, that I finished in no time.
