What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
Army Magazine, March 2006 (circ.: 85,000)

“Don’t let the title fool you; there is much more to this book than weapons. Although it covers the subject well, it also gives the reader a glimpse into the training and tactics used by Rangers, and it makes it clear that the strength of the Ranger Regiment is not the weapons and equipment, but in the soldiers.”
