Elite #013: U.S. Army Rangers and LRRP Units, 1942-87 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ranger - the very word conjures up visions of small, highly trained units executing lightning-fast raids on an unexpecting enemy. It is also synonymous with high esprit de corps and excellence at arms. The US Army Rangers provide units of well-disciplined soldiers who possess the knowledge and courage to operate on their own, deep behind enemy lines. Gordon L. Rottman explores the history of these unique troops, starting with the original 'Rogers' Rangers' company of 1756, whose daring operations and deep penetrations of enemy-held country laid down the pattern for all subsequent Ranger units to follow.

Synopsis:

The Elite titles cover subjects as diverse as the Ancient Greek City armies and the Western and Warsaw Pact forces of today, in the popular Men-at-Arms format but with extended text and captions, about 50 photographs and diagrams, and 12 full-colour plates.
