The Complete RANGER DIGEST : Volumes I-V Now in Ebook Format

Guys who’ve been around awhile probably remember “Ranger” Rick Tscherne’s Ranger Digest series of book. Beginning in 1988, he released 5 volumes of home brewed field tips featuring hand drawings. In later volumes he printed tips from readers and they remind me very much of the early internet with lots of sharing of knowledge and distributed in simple forms. Now, after being out of print for many years, the entire Ranger Digest collection is offered in ebook format and available at Amazon for Kindle, and Barnes & Noble for the Nook.

We recently found out that Loose Cannon partnered with the author to create a new Revised edition in digital eBook formats. Loose Cannon told us, “Many items/tips may be a bit dated, particularly when referring to various equipment no longer currently used by the U.S. military or regarding products that may have been for sale when the guides were originally published. We have taken efforts to try to add updated info and or supplier links to various products/equipment mentioned in the books, but were not always able to recommend a suitable replacement. As such, note that some items or information may be out of date and thus was left in the guide to provide a semblance of what the original guide included within the context as a whole. The goal was to provide as much of the original structure and flavor of the original books in creating this new edition.”

Like the originals, this sounds like fun.

    It’s about time! These little books are packed with good info, I still leaf through my old copies every onc in a while. The Army seems to have forgotten all about fieldcraft in the past ten years, maybe this will help.

    Man, who _didn’t_ have one or two of these? Note to self: need to dig out the old “H”-type LBE suspenders.
