America’s oldest-standing military unit, the 75th Ranger Regiment is the most active brigade-sized force in the current Global War on Terrorism. Rangers do not patrol, they don’t train allied forces, nor do they engage in routine counterinsurgency duties. They have a single-mission focus: they seek out the enemy and they capture or kill them. Their motto—Sua Sponte: “Of Their Own Accord”—reflects their unique role as pure, direct-action warriors.
Given unprecedented access to this highly restricted Special Operations unit in a time of war, retired Navy SEAL Dick Couch follows a group of aspiring warriors through the crucible that is ranger training and their preparation for direct-action missions in Afghanistan against the Taliban.
