Overview

No American military unit can claim as colorful and volatile a military history as the 75th Ranger Regiment. From its guiding principles first written down by Robert Rogers during the French and Indian War of the 18th century to the most recent combat operations in Iraq, Rangers have led the way in America's wars for well over 300 years. Today's Army Rangers combine the rugged individualism of American frontiersmen with the finely honed ability to operate as a close-knit team, wreaking havoc behind enemy lines. This book takes an in-depth look at the most fearsome warriors of the most powerful army in the world, tracing their history and lineage back to the early days of colonial America.
