Inhaltsangabe: The Vietnam War saw the revival of a great military tradition - the Ranger. After World War II there was a Ranger training program, but actual units were usually not deployed. The fluid battlefield in Vietnam created the need for small units to screen American divisions with long-range reconnaissance and ambush tactics. Known initially as "LRRPs" (Long-Range Reconnaissance Patrols) these elite units were eventually centralized and given the revived title of "Rangers."
Ron Field’s detailed text traces the American Ranger tradition back to the days of the French and Indian Wars and Rogers’ Rangers. Over 100 illustrations, many in color, show the evolution of Ranger uniforms, weapons and tactics from colonial times through World War II and Vietnam to today’s 75th Airborne Rangers. Of particular interest is a full-page color painting showing the duties of each man during a classic Ranger operation.
