Osprey Warrior 85 : American Colonial Ranger : The Northern Colonies 1724-1765

American Colonial Ranger examines the development of the Colonial Rangers in the period of 1727-65, and shows how they were taught to survive in the woods, to fight hand-to-hand, to scalp a fallen foe, and to fight across all types of terrain and in all weather conditions. Based on previously unpublished source material, it paints a vivid picture of the life, appearance and experiences of an American colonial ranger in the northern colonies. Covering the battle at Lovewell's Pond in 1725, a watershed event in New England's frontier history, through to King George's War (1740-1748), the rangers were prepared for the final imperial contest for control of North America, the French-Indian War (1754-1763). Text by Gary Zaboly with illustrations by Gary Zaboly.
