Praise

Praise for Rangers at Dieppe

“A remarkable saga of heroism under fire…this is military history at its best.”—Colonel Cole C. Kingseed, co-author of Beyond Band of Brothers
 
“A carefully researched and brilliantly executed narrative of the modern Rangers’ baptism in blood. DeFelice’s skillful account of this almost unknown story sheds bright light onto the origins of a great American military tradition.”—America in WWII

“An up-to-date, clearly written, comprehensively researched account of the formation and training of the American Rangers.”—Booklist
 
“Carefully researched and vividly told.”—Publishers Weekly

“From El Guettar in Tunisia to Pointe du Hoc in Normandy and beyond, Rangers led the way in World War II. They established a reputation second to none, and Rangers at Dieppe is a fitting commemoration of those Rangers who were first to fight. The fifty men who landed alongside the British and Canadians were novices to combat: its chaos, its fear, its unending noise. But Rangers were never supermen—just men who did extraordinary things extraordinarily well. Their legend began on the beaches of Dieppe, and DeFelice is its fitting chronicler.”—Dennis Showalter, author of Patton and Rommel: Men of War in the Twentieth Century
