This rare 1946 classic, the indispensable companion to Vol. II,
Genesis: Rogers' Rangers, The First Green Berets, is based chiefly
on the Loudoun Manuscripts. Here is the history of the very beginning
of Rogers' Rangers, the elite military unit that set the standards
for future special forces. Vol. I covers the years in which Ranger
activities reached their height during the French & Indian War.
The wealth of information to be found in Mr. Loescher's books cannot
be overstated. This is a facsimile of the original edition, the
index to which is found in Vol. II.
Includes maps of the two famous snowshoe battles of La Barbue Creek
and Rogers' Rock, and a fold-out map of 22 early Ranger battles
between 1755-1758. Absolutely essential for every Ranger enthusiast!
