"Acknowledging the fact that a Ranger is a more elite Soldier who arrives at the cutting edge of battle by land, sea, or air, I accept the fact that as a Ranger my country expects me to move further, faster, and fight harder than any other Soldier."
——from the Ranger Creed
"Rangers, lead the way!"
——General Norman Cota
Omaha Beach, June 1944
adapted as the official motto of the U.S. Army Rangers
The history of the U.S. Army Rangers is filled with courage, daring, and unsurpassed fighting skills. The unit's success is directly attributable to its rigorous training, and the Ranger Handbook represents the core of those battlefield skills.
Paladin Press is proud to be able to offer the newly released revised edition of the Ranger Handbook. Much bigger in size and scope than the earlier pocket-sized handbook, this expanded edition covers everything today's Ranger must know to engage in Iraq, Afghanistan, or on future battlefields.
Whether the fighting involves land, sea, or air operations, whether it occurs in the mountains or in cities, the Ranger Handbook provides the tools to enable Rangers to fulfill the final goal of their illustrious unit's creed—"to display the intestinal fortitude required to fight on to the Ranger objective and complete the mission."
