This handbook offers the techniques and tactics that make U.S. Army Rangers the best soldiers in the world. These highly trained, easily deployable, and widely skilled infantrymen specialize in airborne assault, raids, recovery of personnel and equipment, and airfield seizure, among other difficult and dangerous missions. Now, in this recently revised edition of the U.S. Army Ranger Handbook, you can get the latest info on everything from understanding the basics of Army operations and tactics to discovering what makes a soldier with good leadership qualities and character. Although primarily written for Rangers and other light infantry units, it serves as a handy reference for all military units, covering how infantry squad- and platoon-sized elements conduct combat operations in varied terrains.

Drawing from over two centuries of lessons learned in special operations combat, this guide provides modern soldiers with best training possible. It effectively combines the lessons of the past with important insights for the future to help make army leaders the absolute best they can be. In straightforward, no-frills language, it covers deception, stealth, communications, escape and evasion, ambush operations, perimeter defense, counterintelligence, and much more. This book is the ultimate resource for anyone who wants to know how Rangers think and function.

This is just another basic old handbook that teaches great navigation. It is good for the outdoorsman or boy scout. It is interesting reading and I did enjoy reading this book. A great manual for basic knots and navigation. Read full review

Review: US Army Ranger Handbook

User Review  - Chris Vera - Goodreads

I'd like to see this updated with some pictures or improved illustrations. Otherwise, this is the bible for small unit tactics. This book is a must read for any soon-to-be platoon leader or squad leader/PSG in any branch of the Army. Read full review
