Osprey Special Editions (Military) : Shadow Warriors : A History of the US Army Rangers

No American military unit can claim as colorful and volatile a history as the Rangers, who have led the way in America's wars for well over 300 years. This book traces the Rangers from the time of Robert Rogers during the French-Indian War of the 18th century to the most recent combat operations in Iraq. With a focus on today's Army Rangers, who combine the rugged individualism of American frontiersmen with the finely honed ability to operate as a close-knit team, wreaking havoc behind enemy lines, this book incorporates many first-hand accounts of dramatic Ranger actions by the combatants themselves. Text by Mir Bahmanyar.
