Summary, etc.:
In 2004, an Iraqi grenade blew through the cockpit of Tammy Duckworth's US Army Black Hawk helicopter. The explosion, which destroyed her legs and mangled her right arm, was a turning point in her life. But, as Duckworth shows in this memoir, that moment was just one in a lifetime of extraordinary turns.
