Valiant Miniature Kit# 9782 - U.S. Army Ranger, 1943. Major Darby's Rangers were the American equivalent of the British Commandos, and drew their name and traditions from Rogers' Rangers of the French and Indian Wars. The Rangers were crack troops, trained for swift, stealthy raids behind enemy lines. Casualties were always heavy. Two of Darby's Battalions were trapped at Anzio and wiped out; of 764 men who went into a ravine at Cisterna only 7 returned to American lines.
