About the book:

Raised in Mississippi, Ezell Ware was determined to excel. Having grown up without running water, electricity, or sufficient food, he wasn't daunted by the hardships of military life. Eventually he earned a chance to join the Army's helicopter pilot program, realizing his dream of flying. It was a role that would change his life, and the life of an unlikely brother in valor at the height of the Vietnam War.

Downed by enemy fire, Ware and his badly injured captain endured a three-week trek through hell. But when his captain revealed his membership in the Ku Klux Klan, the situation took a turn that surprised them both-and sent Ezell on the road to becoming a general. A unique memoir of heroism and humanity, By Duty Bound captures a crucial chapter in American history-through the eyes of one of its most remarkable witnesses.
