The inspiring story of a young American who volunteered for the Israel Defense Forces, lost his arm in combat, and then returned to the battlefield. Combining refreshing candor with self-deprecating wit, this memoir will encourage readers to fulfill their dreams despite impossible odds.
A decorated squad commander in the Israel Dense Forces, U.S. born and raised Izzy is the only solider in the world who lost an arm in combat and returned to the battlefield.
While he continues to serve in an elite unit in the reserves, Izzy delivers talks across the US and internationally. He's appeared on the Huffington Post, Al Jazeera America, and Fox News. He also raises millions of dollars for hospitals, rehabilitation programs, and other charities such as the Birthright Foundation. He has worked with amputee organizations, schools, hedge funds, and for events at companies such as Nike and Apple. And he just turned 30 years old!
