Rangers, Scouts, and Raiders
by Michael F. Dilley
- American History, Soldier's Stories
America's elite warriors
Throughout history there has always been a need, in military forces, for special units. In the past, these units have usually been ad hoc formations that were disbanded after their mission was complete. It has only been since the early 1950s that such units have remained active.
Rangers, Scouts, and Raiders examines the history of American special forces through a number of operations, ranging from the French and Indian War in the 18th century to the Vietnam War. From the Son Tay raid to the Force at la Difensa and Rogers’ Rangers, the operations are diverse in organization and purpose, but all contributed to the mission of their theater or larger organization, thus proving the need for special units throughout history and today.
