Praise

“A detailed and vivid look at how the Army Rangers train for war.”—Larry Bond, author of Exit Plan

[Couch’s] chronicle of the rigorous training that develops a young soldier into a young apprentice Ranger is detailed, accurate, and captivating.”—General W. F. “Buck” Kernan, U.S. Army (Ret.)

“A great read that describes how the reputation of Rangers, now burnished with the exploits of the current generation in Afghanistan and Iraq, reflects the leaders that select and mold them.”—General Stanley McChrystal, U.S. Army (Ret.)

“A wonderfully graphic account of the gut-busting ordeal of becoming a U.S. Army Ranger in the 75th Ranger Regiment…Earning the tan beret is, quite simply, a test of manhood—only those with ample stocks of strength, stamina, commitment, and valor need apply.”—Linda Robinson, author of Masters of Chaos

“Granted unprecedented access, Couch follows a Ranger class through to its departure for the battlefield…An admiring, inspiring account of how the Army shapes and sharpens the tip of its spear.”—Kirkus Reviews
