Reviews about We Led the Way: Darby's Rangers (7):
William Darby and the U.S. army rangers were an amazing group of guys and what they accomplished is awe inspiring. Unfortunately, the stories written down in a book just don't seem to do justice to how it really played out in real life. The be honest the book, up until the end is, well; dull. To give an example from the book:...a Ranger was standing in a stream bed, whispering to each to climb the little shelf ahead, curve to the left around the base of the hill...and go down in the valley to the right. I think the only true way to "feel" what this was like for the rangers is watch it on film. The last 50 pages in this book does however have gut wrenching stories. One is told of rangers being surrounded in a building and over the radio comes a sergeant who exclaims,"...we're running out of ammunition. But I ain't surrendering. They are coming into the building now." The radio went wham, wham- and was dead. I can't imagine the horror of knowing ones own death is at the door. Hopefully Hollywood will film a modern day movie and bring William Darby back to the forefront; which by the way is where he always was in battle.
The Rangers are one of the legendary fighting units, and to read their history in their leader's own words is something to behold. William O. Darby was quite a man, loved by his own men, and we'll never know what all he would accomplished, due to his untimely death at the age of 34. Baumer's interviewing him and other Rangers, then putting everything together in this book does a great service for those of us who want firsthand knowledge of Darby's Rangers.
I have seen the movie Darby's Rangers many times and I am always moved by the events that crippled the Rangers in Italy. The lead actor and his top Sgt were the kind of people I would like to serve with. The book, much more in depth as to the actual events as recorded by O'Darby himself is a vivid recollection of events, battles and extra ordinary men. The descimation of the battalion and subsequent death of Col Darby makes him a larger than life person. The Rangers, now a permanent part of the US Army continue to carry the spiirt of the Rangers.
Five-star book, one-star edition.

Darby's story is incredible and truly heroic. Darby was rare, natural leader: inspiringly charismatic while at the same time being selfless, humble, and ALWAYS concerned for his men. He would have been a great postwar leader if he hadn't have been tragically cut down just nine days before the war in Europe ended. It's amazing that so many people have never heard of him. Hollywood has only attempted a telling once, with mediocre results. Rick Atkinson's sequential books An Army At Dawn and Day Of Battle finally give him due justice, but Hollywood does need to try again. This is an essential read.

That said, THIS edition is shoddy. I remember being stunned by the excellent quality and detail of the photos when I first read my beat-up older edition. It was like being taken back in time. THESE reproductions are new but they look like they were copied on an old 90s dot matrix! For shame. William O. Darby deserves better.
Completely as represented by Seller & would gladly deal again. Fairly low cost way to add a desired book to my library.
These men truly have earned the title "the greatest generation". Amazing what they went through and what they accomplished. May w never forget their sacrifices.
Written back in the day when men were men and there was no question about it!
a good gift
