We need more books like Violence of Action. As a society that has lived with war on the periphery for more than a decade, modern Americans have far too many untold stories. Stories serve so many purposes. As a nation, they build our history, immortalize glory, and serve as valuable tools of therapy. Violence of Action is a collection of firsthand accounts from various authors by and about Rangers of the 75th Ranger Regiment. Modern-day Rangers are not accustomed to sharing their stories with non-Rangers, but Violence of Action breaks through that stigma as a work of literature that holds the potential to serve as the stepping-off point for a generation of quiet-professional warriors.
