The outlook for a victory by the Allied Powers was in doubt in 1942. When only two untested American divisions arrived in the European theater, Gen. Lucien K. Truscott conceived the plan of organizaing an American commando unit to be known as the "Rangers." Maj. William O. Darby was placed in command of the first Ranger battalion and proved himself an officer of such extraordinary leadership that his unit became known as "Darby's Rangers." The Spearheaders is an account from an enlisted man's point of view of the intensely dramatic career of the Rangers. -- Back cover
