Kurzbeschreibung

Vietnam was a different kind of war, calling for a different kind of soldier. The LRRPs--Long Range Reconnaissance Patrols--were that new breed of fighting man. They operated in six-man teams deep within enemy territory, and were the eyes and ears of the units they served. This is their story--of perseverence under extreme hardship and uncommon bravery--and how they carried out the war's most hazardous missions.


From the Paperback edition.

Synopsis

Tells the story of the Long Range Reconnaisance Patrols in Vietnam, explains how they were staffed and trained, and discusses their missions and tactics.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well Researched 18. März 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I have had the great pleasure of meeting Lee Lanning. He is first, and foremost, a gentlemen and accomplished writer. Mr. Lanning served in Vietnam with the 'Red Cathers' of the 199 Light Infantry. It is unfortunate that Lee Lanning did not have all the records about Lurps available to him at the time of his book because of Shelby Stanton. Stanton had many of the classified documents in his home and garage. See Jug Burkett's book, 'Stolen Valor. How the Vietnam Generation Was Robbed of its Heroes and its History.' Stanton robbed Mr. Lee Lanning from his complete research and in spite of that, Mr. Lee Lanning's book, 'Inside the LRRPs: Rangers in Vietnam' is the TOPS!

Format:Taschenbuch
I have read this book, and allthough it is not the best that I have read, I still enjoyed it very much. I don't know if Michael had a personnal expierence with the LRRP/RANGERS, but he still did an excellent job of depicting the things that many of our young RANGER boys went through. Roadrunner6 out

5.0 von 5 Sternen Learning by Lanning 30. Mai 2012
Von Writetrak - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
To Michael Lee Lanning's credit he wrote one of the first detailed books on LRRP/Ranger operations in Vietnam and how they formally and informally fit into the overall U.S. Army Ranger concept. More so, he helped set the foundation for the many books that followed by adding some of the personal accounts of the LRRPs and Rangers and a number of their missions that brought their service to attention of the general public. Those of us who served as LRRP/Rangers during the war owe him a debt of gratitude. Thank you, sir and folks, to better understand any of the other LRRP/Ranger books start with this one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent piece of work 18. November 2008
Von Vickie L. Kroll - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I was lucky enough to find this used for less than a dollar. What a deal. The book is brief but crammed with details, less on the personal accounts as a LRRP (author was a LRRP platoon leader himself, briefly) and more on technical stuff and hard facts. Really a good read and worth adding to any Vietnam or special operations-related book collection.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Important Contribution to the LRRP Story 2. Januar 2011
Von Mike Cunha - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
"Inside the LRRPs: Rangers in Vietnam" should really be named "Everything You Always Wanted to Know about LRRPs." Author Michael Lee Lanning has done a tremendous amount of work in compiling this operational and background history of the Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol units that fought in the Vietnam War.

"Inside the LRRPs" covers every known detail that went into forming, training and operating these units during the Vietnam War years. The reading can be dry at points--the evolution of US Army Field Manual 31-18 over the years won't raise your heartbeat--but the author can only be commended for covering his subject thoroughly and providing every detail he possibly could.

Inevitably what would have revved up this book, and what's largely missing, are recollections from actual LRRPs themselves. To be clear, there are several stories throughout the book and a few vignettes at the beginning, but simply not enough to warrant the title of "Inside the LRRPs." Soldiers' tales told at the beginning of each chapter would have done much more to excite the reader, since that is what he/she was no doubt looking for when he picked up this book.

Lanning's book stands as an important contribution to the LRRP story and to the history of the Army Rangers of today, as it provides a structure of how these units were formed, how they trained and how they operated in Southeast Asia.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What Long Range Patrol Companies actually did in Vietnam 14. Februar 2014
Von Philip C. Bryant - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I was a US Army Ranger, tabbed in August 1967. An Infantry Platoon Leader in the 3rd Brigade of the 25th Division in January to April 1968. About April 1st my Company Commander told me the that the "25th Division Rangers" wanted for me to consider transferring to their command as the Company S-3 (Operations and Training Officer). I was also told by my CO that he wanted me to be his replacement as Company Commander of Bravo Company 3/22 when he was rotated home. I had three days to decide. On April 2nd, on patrol I was wounded by a grenade and sent back to the States for surgery and recovery.
I always regretted that I did not ask to visit the 25th Div Rangers to see everything that they were doing and find out why they needed a S-3.
This book answers both questions very well.
