The History of Rogers’ Rangers, Volume I: The Beginnings, January 1755 - April 6, 1758 - Burt Garfield Loescher. This rare 1946 classic-the indispensable companion to Volume 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.

The wealth of information to be found in Mr. Loescher's books cannot be overstated. Original copies of this book sell for hundreds of dollars! Maps of the two famous snowshoe battles of La Barbue Creek and Rogers' Rock, and a fold-out map of twenty-two early Ranger battles between 1755 and 1758 are included. This series is absolutely essential for every Ranger enthusiast! (1946), 2006, 5½x8½, paper, 438 pp. 101-L4295 ISBN: 0788442953
