"All Rangers are volunteers, selected for strength and ability to use such weapons as daggers, grenades, fists, tommy guns and mortars, began training months ago alongside British, Canadian, French units. They went through a super-strengthening process that was described by Rice Yahner of the Associated Press:"

"The men drilled at double time until their feet blistered and their lungs were bursting. When their legs were ready to fold, they started again... Then they got climbing and diving and crawling over obstacles and crossing a bridge made of the seven-foot ropes which each man carries... Then a 36-mile hike over the bleak trackless mountains with only half rations and what the men could forage from the countryside."
