Reviews - What do customers think about U.S. Army Ranger Handbook?
Read This for Valuable Information Apr 19, 2008
I have read the reviews above and I have read this book, in many formats and many times, this book is a stellar reference when it comes to the principles of Patrolling, TLP, MDMP, various other things that not only Rangers but every Soldier should know.
This is NOT the version that the army issues. It is identical in every way except it is in a bigger version. The Army Version is in fact pocket sized, this is not. This is still a great desktop version/version for dudes that want to learn about military matters.
One warning, this book is dry, and only exciting if you are familiar with military terms, and graphics. Like I said, this one is identicle to the Army issued one except for its size.
This is definitely one of those books that is a must read for every Soldier, and anyone curious to learn about how Soldiers operate.
Ranger Handbook Jan 21, 2008
I ordered this product to help me brush up on my Army knowledge after I was called back to active duty. It is comprable to the Ranger handbooks that you get on an Army post, except this book is significantly larger and seems to be an older version than what I was used to carrying. Not a bad thing to purchase, but much too large to carry in your cargo pocket.
Amazing Resource Dec 19, 2007
The U.S Department of Defense has put out the handbook for U.S. Army Rangers, and this is the book to get on the subject. You can find out information Troop Leading Procedures, Waterborne Operations, Combat Patrols, pretty much anything you would ever want to know about army procedures, is in this book.
Not the real Ranger handbook Dec 8, 2007
Sorry man, your wrong this is not the the Army Ranger Handbook. I just received the latest Army Ranger Manual from the cadre at 4th RTB, Fort Benning. The manual I received from this seller is NOT the latest version / not any version the army would give to a Ranger.
Good softcover version of the Ranger Handbook Oct 12, 2007
Just recently purchased this book and have gone through it a few times already. The print is kinda small and it is definitely not something you would want to take out on the field, but overall I consider it to be a great supplement to FM 7-8. This may be a harder book to read if you are not familiar with basic U.S. military terms.
