Synopsis: First ever indepth study devoted to the activities of the formidable, highly trained U.S Army Rangers -The truth behind what it took to run Long Range Reconnaissance Patrols -Written by a leading military historian and expert of the war in South East Asia One of the toughest and most challenging jobs in Vietnam was to be a U.S. Army Ranger running Long Range Reconnaissance Patrols. The LRRPs took volunteers only, and training was designed to weed out all but the best. What emerged was an elite outfit of warriors in the finest sense of the word. Now Shelby Stanton, renowned military authority on the war in Southeast Asia, presents the first and only definitive history of the LRRPs and the U.S. Army Rangers in Vietnam. They're all here: the Screaming Eagle Patrollers, Cochise Raiders, Charlie Rangers, Cobra Lightning Patrollers, and more.
Review: "Shelby Stanton has emerged as the leading military historian on the war in Southest Asia." Col. Charles B. Macdonald Author of Company Commander and A Time for Trumpets
