Customer Review

on 9 March 2009
As a boy I watched these soldiers train on the cliffs. They were good to the local kids, and threw a party for us when they left. It was only twenty years later that I learnt the truth about "Rudder's Rangers", how they stormed the cliffs at Pointe Du Hoc in Nowmandy. This book graphically describes those events and touches upon the Rangers' time in Bude, North Cornwall. The terrible sacrifice of those young soldiers is forever etched in the reader's mind. Told with a knowing authority, but with humane wit and a certain irony at times, the Rangers' long campaign through Normandy, France and Germany is littered with heroism and selfless bravery. I knew the names of the Rangers only by their given names, everyday names of Americans; by this book I know them all, their very souls and personalities. Led by their CO. Colonel Rudder, this band of men left the blood of America upon Europe's ancient fields. The book illustrates how Europe and America were united against a common enemy; the ties that bound them together on the battlefields.
Highly reccommended.
