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.

Great story!

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

Great Book

Rarely do you hear or read stories of the Rangers but this book definitely sheds some light on their participation in the Iraqi and Afghan war. I did however notice that the narrator mispronounced several words and there was one chapter that was read by a woman portraying a deceased Rangers mother that I thought did not belong in this book. The chapter in question seemed more like religious propaganda rather than about the 75th. I actually skipped this chapter after listening to ten minutes of it. Other than that, I found the book to be very informative and hilarious at times. I recommend.
