Samenvatting

This landmark study examines the nature and purpose of the U.S. Army Rangers over the past fifty years and shows how they have been used as scouts, raiders, assault troops, and elite infantry. This provocative study describes how Rangers served their country during World War II. Hogan, an historian with the U.S. Army Center of Military History, also traces the development of Ranger raider units in Korea, the role of Green Berets in Vietnam, in Grenada, and in terrorist attacks and new combat situations today. Photographs, maps, and a thorough bibliographic essay add to the usefulness of the study.
