PREFACE
The MCOE SH 21-76 (Ranger Handbook) is mainly written for U.S. Army Rangers and other light Infantry units, however it should also serve as a handy reference for other U.S. military units. It covers how Infantry squad- and platoon-sized elements conduct combat operations in varied terrains. It cites other Army resources to ensure continuity.

This handbook provides squad and platoon leaders with the roles, tactics, knowledge, and operational requirements to employ combat multipliers in a combat environment.

    Lots of misplaced text

    A lot of the words - and even whole sentence fragments - are arranged wrong. It's difficult to read. All the right information are there, but it's tough to get through because of this. RLTW.

    Didnt have what I expected.

    It was just an outline. It didnt have any real ranger techniques in it. I only paid $2.00 for it.
    I guess I got what I paid for.

    This ebook suffered through a truly awful conversion process.  F

    This ebook suffered through a truly awful conversion process.  Formatting is just horrible.  Sentences are broken.  There are random capital letters throughout the text.  Unless you have a TREMENDOUS amount of patience, avoid this book like the plague.
