Reviews - What do customers think about U.S. Army Ranger Handbook SH 21-76?
the real deal Jul 10, 2008
this book is the same book ranger trainies are issued in ranger school. the book is about 3inch by 5 in and the writing is small. it is ment to be covered in od green duct tape to protect the outside and be carried in a cargo pocket for easy access. the material is a culmination of all military and outdoorsman knowledge from the begining of time. the material is dry and typical army manual. the book also looks nothing like the picture. this book is great for any soldier, anyone interest in the military, or a manual for life in the outdoors with interesting military tactical knowledge
The Real Deal May 21, 2008
If Amber and her husband weren't happy with the content, then they want something else besides the Ranger Handbook. This is the real deal, it's the same copy I got when I went through in 2004. Of course, now it is covered in handwritten notes and 100 mph tape, but I still have it.
It's size is intentionally small so it will fit in the pocket of BDU's or whatever the hell they are calling them now. The utility is that it has so much info in a quick to reference manner.
So Amber, you didn't get rooked, you got the real deal. If you are upset about the price, you should know that they are giving them away for free at the United States Army Ranger School in Ft. Benning, GA.
Size is not everything Amber... May 2, 2007
It's the amount of content inside the book. The SH 21-74 Ranger Handbook is rich in content and is a useful addition to any man's library.
It's not the size, it's the content. Dec 20, 2004
This book is the newest out and very hard to find else where. The Military content is up to date and is what the troops are using right now. The book is made small still with very good print and pictures so you can take it into the field. Glad to know our military does not buy things just because of the size. This book is far better than the other ranger books in print.
Very Small for $20. Dec 16, 2004
I bought this because it is supposed to be the newest version. I paid 19.99 for it, and thought my husband would get a kick out of it, since he's always going on about how "cool" the rangers are. Frankly, it was a little disapointing. Not what I expect out of a 20 dollar book. It has some charts in it, and I would say its about 5inches by 3inches. IF this book was under $10 I would have given it a higher rating, because thats what it looks like it's worth.
