Luke Murphy's latest update for Blasted by Adversity: The Making of a Wounded Warrior

Mar 17, 2015

Hello, everyone –

We have lots of good news to report. We produced a book trailer last week, which has already created some buzz on Facebook. We wanted to make sure you didn’t miss it:

We also wanted to share this “hot off the press” review we received last week from Brian Mockenhaupt. Brian is a widely published freelance writer (Esquire, New York Times, The Atlantic) and also the editor of the Journal of Military Experience. He served two tours in Iraq as an infantryman with the 10th Mountain Division, so if anyone understands our book, Brian does.

Here’s how he describes “Blasted”…

With humility that belies doggedness, Luke Murphy leads readers from the stress-fueled rhythms of a soldier at war, to the blast that took his leg and the long road home from the battlefield – and the unexpected places that journey has taken him. As America's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan fade from public view, Blasted by Adversity reminds us that wars don't end when the shooting stops. —Brian Mockenhaupt, former Army infantryman and author of The Living and the Dead: War, Friendship, and the Battles that Never End.

We appreciate all of you – our faithful fans and backers for the book – and we look forward to sharing more success stories in the future.

Luke Murphy –
