During World War II the US Army organised a remarkable array of highly specialised, small units. The ranks of these forces were filled with men who, by virtue of their natural aggressiveness and intensive training, possessed diverse war-making skills well beyond those of standard troops. This book, by the author of "The Supercommandos", tells the story of the US Army's elite Rangers and Special Forces largely through photographs. Never before has such an expansive view of World War II elite forces been offered in one volume, most previously unpublished and including colour images. Most notable are the nearly twenty exemplary photographs of Lieutenant-Colonel William O Darby's Ranger Force in Italy, taken by Robert Capa - considered by many to be the greatest combat photographer of all time. Complementing the period photographs are numerous colour plates detailing the rare and often unique items of insignia, weapons and equipment that marked the soldiers whose heavy task it was to "Lead the Way".
