I found this thesis on the 2nd Ranger Battalion while doing a bit of Googling and thought it might be of interest to some of you.

Quote:
This thesis is a micro-history of how the 2nd Ranger Battalion, during World War II evolved their military doctrine. This work focuses on their training for operation Pointe du Hoc and the ensuing battle. After the fight for Pointe du Hoc the Rangers were deployed in a variety of ways. Be examining the Brest campaign, the battles in the Hurtgen Forest, and the crossing of the Rhine River, the Ranger doctrine slowly begins to emerge.


Can be downloaded from this page: http://diginole.lib.fsu.edu/etd/2255/

I found it quite interesting, but I don't think I'd have given it top marks. What do you think of it?

Cheers
Joe
