This is a non fiction book about the French and Indian war.After the massacre of fort William Henry.That massacre hailed cries for revenge.On October 4,1759 Major Robert Rogers and his men surprised the Abenaki Indian Village.They slaughtered it's sleeping inhabitants without any mercy.When they returned to safety they were hailed as heroes by the colonist.The Abenaki's forever remembered Major Rogers as Wobomagondo"White Devil" Parts of this were taken from the back of the book.

Robert Rogers is hailed as the father of Special forces.This book is a gripping account of the violence that both sides were capable in this war. It is an amazing feat that was accomplished by Major rogers and his men. This is a true story that no fiction book could come close to its reality.

Wow.

Your first post is about a book on the French Indian Wars on a hiking site.

Haven't seen what happens to spammers around here yet, have you?

Reading history through contemporary eyes doesn't work. Just sayin.

Well I apologize if any one thinks I am a spammer!!!! The part of this book I thought had to do with hiking would be Major Rogers retreat route.approximately 141 rangers with major Rogers retreated approximately 200 miles through uncharted wilderness.never mind the 10 day trek through wilderness to reach St Francis. It is a bit of American history mixed with hiking and survival.Once again my apologies if I offended anyone.Was not my intent.

I wasn't in the Rangers. Armor. Superman was probably with him though. He was airborne but back then they just jumped out of trees.

I was on operations that the 1/16th were also on. They were the "Rangers." I did spend some time with the ARVN 7th Ranger Regt. I didn't start jumping out of perfectly good airplanes until I was a civilian. In 1965 I had my 1049 in for jump school but my orders for Vietnam came in first.

Yeah, I was one of the retards that jumped out of aircraft significantly older and more decrepit than I was. Kinda silly in the age of the helicopter, though there are a small number of places where it would still be useful. Rangers are still the real deal. And much more lethal than during the French and Indian War.

"And much more lethal than during the French and Indian War"
On the other hand, Roger's Rangers didn't have civie reporters
and photographers imbedded to report the "horrible" things they did.

Superman

The reporters that we had weren't imbedded. They showed up with their agendas and they weren't going to let the facts influence what they wrote. 8)
