Publisher's Summary

Violence of Action is much more than the true, first-person accounts of the 75th Ranger Regiment in the Global War on Terror. Within this audio are the heartfelt, firsthand accounts from and about the men who lived, fought, and died for their country, their regiment, and each other. Objective Rhino, Haditha Dam, recovering Jessica Lynch, the hunt for Zarqawi, the recovery of Extortion 17, and everything in between... These stories have been told many times in barracks rooms, at bar tables, and at backyard barbecues, but they have never before been shared with the general public. It is time for those stories to be heard.
So much more than just stories from a specific unit, this audiobook reveals the sights, smells, and emotions of everything that happens in war - good or bad. It will be seen as the quintessential, ageless work on the human condition in combat.

proper army lingo... learn it.

This was a pretty good book but I think it's disrespectful for the narrators to speak of soldiers and their rank by speaking the individual letters of abbreviations of a soldiers rank rather than what the abbreviations stand for. For example, SFC Jones is an abbreviation for Sargent First Class Jones and should be read that way... he's not a SFC, HE'S A SERGEANT FIRST CLASS AND SHOULD BE ADDRESSED AS THIS.! It is personally offensive to be referred to as a couple of letters rather than the rank we worked so hard and sacrificed so much to earn To the producers of this audiobook, please fix this in future productions.

Thank you,
Staff Sergeant (SSG) Jason Lowman

Great story!

Great collection of stories! For me personally, the female narrator wasn't great, but the rest was very well done.

interesting stories

interesting stories... not sure it needed the family side though.
worth a listen anyway.
A very US centric view of everything... as you would expect of a book about US troops... you just have to tune that out at times to keep it real
