    Outstanding book .... a must have for military enthusiasts

    This book in incredible. It takes you from the arrival of US Army Basic Training all the way through the US Rangers Specialty Training programs with vivid pictures and descriptive text. After living in Savannah, GA (home of the 1st Batallion) for 12 years, and knowing several Rangers, I'll never look or think of them the same again. If you think that you have respect for them now, read this book and then you'll respect them more than ever. From a hopeful future Army Ranger, I encourace you to get this great book. You'll love it.
