about this book

No American military unit can claim as colorful and volatile a history as the Rangers, who have led the way in America's wars for well over three hundred years. This book traces the Rangers from the time of Robert Rogers during the French-Indian War of the 18th century to the most recent combat operations in Iraq. With a focus on today's Army Rangers, who combine the rugged individualism of American frontiersmen with the finely honed ability to operate as a close-knit team, wreaking havoc behind enemy lines, this fascinating volume incorporates many first-hand accounts of dramatic Ranger actions by the combatants themselves.
"Shadow Warriors is a tribute to the memorable role Rangers have played over the course of American history. . . The firsthand accounts of dramatic Ranger action, the charts, photographs and background information accompanied by detailed appendixes make it worth reading." --CSM Jimmie W. Spencer, USA Ret. Army Magazine (Magazine of the Association of the United States Army)
