“In this well-written book, H. Paul Jeffers paints a colorful picture of William O. Darby, one of the remarkable commanders in recent U.S. military history, and the uncommon men he led into battle. On these pages, Darby comes to life, as do the many battles his Rangers fought in North Africa and Italy. Anyone who is interested in the U.S. Army Rangers should read this book.”—John C. McManus, Author of The Dead and Those About to Die and September Hope
“A thoroughly engrossing, can’t-put-it-down history of a battalion of courageous men, and their leader, who helped lay the groundwork for today’s Special Forces. The book is a terrific read.”—Larry Alexander, New York Times Bestselling Coauthor of A Higher Call and Author of Biggest Brother: The Life of Major Dick Winters, the Man Who Led the Band of Brothers
“Tough, decent, cocky, and fearless, Bill Darby was right out of an issue of Boys’ Life, or a fantasy of Teddy Roosevelt. But he was the real thing, the warrior who created America’s most daring force in World War II, the Army Rangers. In Onward We Charge, H. Paul Jeffers brings Darby’s story to life with verve and skill.”—Evan Thomas, New York Times Bestselling Author of Sea of Thunder and Being Nixon
“In Onward We Charge, H. Paul Jeffers breathes life into a storied World War II figure, Col. William O. Darby. In leading his Rangers, Darby proved to be one of the European Theater’s most unique commanders, and Jeffers’s lively prose and clear writing rightly accords a prominent place to the figure. Jeffers shows us that wars are won, in part, because amazing individuals rise to the occasions when they are most needed. Darby stepped forward in World War II, and now Jeffers steps forward with this riveting study of a fascinating man.”—John Wukovits, Author of One Square Mile of Hell
“A vivid portrait of the indomitable soldier who forged the Rangers in his own image and led them through critical campaigns that testified to the courage and glory of World War II’s most elite unit.”—Gerald Astor, author of A Blood-Dimmed Tide and June 6, 1944: The Voices of D-Day
