U.S. Army Rangers & Special Forces of World War II: : Their War in Photos Hardback

Description

U.S. Army Rangers & Special Forces of World War II tells the story of the U.S.

Army's elite Rangers and special forces largely through pictures.

Never before has such an expansive view of World War II been offered in one volume.

Furthermore, an extensive search of public and private archives unearthed an astonishing number of rare and never before seen images, some in color.

Most notable are the nearly twenty exemplary photographs of Lieutenant Colonel William O.

Darby's Ranger Force in Italy, taken by Robert Capa, who is considered by many to be the greatest combat photographer of all time.

Complementing the period photographs are numerous color plates detailing the rare and often unique items of insignia, weaponry, and equipment that marked the soldiers whose heavy task it was to lead the way.
