About the Author

Books by David Rose


Joining the Marines in 2002, David Rose signed up to go fight … and to go die. On this grim path, rather than finding a violent death, he would find family, purpose, and a brotherhood amid the misfit tribal world of the war fighter.

No Joy sees David recounting madcap tales of Muay Thai bouts in seedy garages, a bizarre stint as a street cop, being on the other side of the badge, becoming a veteran of the psych ward, and more. It’s an irreverently told story that doesn’t just tell one man’s tale, but speaks to the necessary question: What really draws modern young men to war?
