Summary

Darby's Rangers is a memoir of William O. Darby’s battalion's combat in North Africa and Italy.

This is the exciting true story of a legendary leader and the men who fought by his side in World War II, told in his own words.

The summer of 1942 was an unforgettable time for the World War II Allies. Until that year, defeat had followed defeat. Pearl Harbor came first for the United States, and then the loss of the Philippines; Britain had its Dunkirk and had lost Singapore; and the Soviet Union was fighting a desperate battle against the Nazi Army on its entire Western front.
