DeFelice, Jim
NY Berkley Caliber Books 2008 0425219216 / 9780425219218 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Remainder mark. All else clean, tight and bright. ; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 300 pages; A remarkable saga of heroism under fire. DeFelice's account of the American Rangers' baptism of fire two years before D-Day is as compelling as it is provocative. This is military history at its best. --Colonel Cole C. Kingseed. Just months after Pearl Harbor, with America still struggling to bring itself up to fighting strength for World War II, it was decided that a specially-trained force based upon the British commando squads should be formed. They would become known as the Rangers. Before their training was even complete, they would be thrust into the crucible of battle, taking part in a combined Canadian-British assault on the Germanheld French port of Dieppe. The raid was a disaster, and the fight for Dieppe became a slaughter, with horrific Allied losses. Several Rangers were killed or wounded-the first American blood spilled on European soil in the Second World War. Here, drawn from historical records and personal recollections by those who were there, and illustrated with photographs and maps, is the story of those fifty Rangers who found themselves fighting nobly on the front lines in a battle they could not win-and would be lucky to survive. 30058

In their own words, the personal stories of America's World War II veterans. Here is the first combat history of the war in Europe in the words of the men themselves, and perhaps the most honest and brutal account of combat possible on the printed page. For more than fifty years the individual stories that make up this narrative--shockingly frank reflections of sacrifice and courage--have been bottled up, buried, or circulated privately. Now, nearing the ends of their lives, our WWII soldiers have at last unburdened themselves. ; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 366 pages; 27842
