One of a series about special units at the cutting edge of war, this book explores the origins, history, organisation and order of battle of the US Rangers, which was formed in 1942 along the lines of the British Commandos. It also examines the vital role the unit played in all major theatres of the Second World War, North Africa, Europe and the Pacific, through the Korean, Vietnam and Gulf Wars, to the latest areas of conflict, providing an assessment of its effectiveness, as seen by the unit itself, by its opponents and in the light of more recent historical research.
