Children's LiteratureIn times of war, and peace, they are the elite of the army, asked to do many different tasks and fulfill many different roles. They are the army rangers. Trained to withstand extremes in weather, to jump from planes, and to operate varied equipment and vehicles, the army rangers are the best of the best. A volume in the "Blazers--The U.S. Armed Forces" series, this book provides the reader insight into the many aspects of a army ranger's role in the military and in military actions. As with other "Blazers" books, the reader gets fact balloons; one interesting one tells how within 18 hours rangers are ready to move out to a battle or for any type of action. Carrie Braulick writes with clarity and action, demonstrating an interest in the subject about which she is writing. Numerous photographs help illuminate the subject. In the back of the book readers are given resources for further study and more in depth information to move forward on their study of U.S. army rangers. A good addition to any public or school library collection. 2006, Capstone Press, Ages 8 to 13.
