Book Description:
After Pearl Harbor, the United States was struggling to bring itself up to fighting strength for World War II when a specially trained force based upon the famed British commando squads was formed. It would become known as the Rangers.

Before their training was complete, the Rangers were thrust into battle, taking part in an assault on the German held French port of Dieppe. Plagued by politics and inter service rivalry, the raid would become one of the greatest debacles of the war. Allied losses included several Rangers killed or wounded the first American blood spilled on European soil in the war.

Here, drawn from historical records and personal recollections by those who were there, and illustrated with photographs, is the story of the baptism of fire of what would become the U.S. Army Rangers.
