      One of the most definitive histories of the US Army Rangers from their initial conception as a temporary raiding school unit that would spread its combat knowledge to the then novice US Army to the 80s and their participation in Grenada This is a must read for those interested in the Rangers and the evolution of US Army doctrine.
