'The thrilling true account of a famous woodsman, scout & guerilla leader during the formative years of the American Nation' In the evocative pages of Rogers own journal we are taken through a landscape of dark untrodden forest where danger from hostile Indians and the French Army threaten every step. Famous exploits of guerilla warfare are graphically told, including battles and ambushes on America's lakes, the devastating 'Fight on Snowshoes' and the raid against the Abanakee's village at St, Francis, recounted across time by Rogers himself.

In North America's first major conflict, known today as the French and Indian War, France and England-both in alliance with Native American tribes-fought each other in a series of bloody battles and terrifying raids. No confrontation was more brutal and notorious than the massacre of the British garrison of Fort William Henry--an incident memorably depicted in James Fenimore Cooper's The Last of the Mohicans. That atrocity stoked calls for revenge, and the tough young Major Robert Rogers and his "Rangers" were ordered north into enemy territory to take it. On the morning of October 4, 1759, they surprised the Abenaki Indian village of St. Francis, slaughtering its sleeping inhabitants without mercy. When the raiders returned to safety, they were hailed as heroes by the colonists, and their leader was immortalized as "the brave Major Rogers." But the Abenakis remembered Rogers differently: To them he was Wobomagonda--"White Devil."

Often hailed as the godfather of today’s elite special forces, Robert Rogers trained and led an unorthodox unit of green provincials, raw woodsmen, farmers, and Indian scouts on “impossible” missions in colonial America that are still the stuff of soldiers’ legend. The child of marginalized Scots-Irish immigrants, Rogers learned to survive in New England’s dark and deadly forests, grasping, as did few others, that a new world required new forms of warfare. John F. Ross not only re-creates Rogers’s life and his spectacular battles with breathtaking immediacy and meticulous accuracy, but brings a new and provocative perspective on Rogers’s unique vision of a unified continent, one that would influence Thomas Jefferson and inspire the Lewis and Clark expedition. Rogers’s principles of unconventional war-making would lay the groundwork for the colonial strategy later used in the War of Independence—and prove so compelling that army rangers still study them today. Robert Rogers, a backwoods founding father, was heroic, admirable, brutal, canny, ambitious, duplicitous, visionary, and much more—like America itself.

The American frontier in the 1730s was a dangerous place to be. Life was hard for white settlers and marauding Indians would as soon scalp as trade with them. Into this harsh environment was born Robert Rogers, a boy who would grow up to be a brilliant leader of men and become one of the most charismatic, if flawed characters of his era. Over the course of his colorful career, Rogers was a frontiersman, farmer, trapper, Ranger leader, Indian fighter (and friend), speculator, merchant, London socialite and commandant of the most important fur trading post in the West of the 1760s. It was during the French and Indian War that he set down the Rangers' "Standing Orders" on survival and guerilla warfare, which was to prove his lasting legacy and is still used by US Special Forces today. He also fraternized with the highest-ranking officers of the British Army in North America and was twice received at Court in England. And, as if all this weren't enough, he launched a search for the elusive Northwest Passage (as immortalized in the film of that name starring Spencer Tracey) but his many successes were often counterbalanced, and sometimes ruined, by a variety of personal challenges that seemed to be always nipping at his heels. This remarkable man, who ended his years in penury in London, is as little understood today as he was in his own time and has long deserved a comprehensive and fair biography. Gary Zaboly's minutely researched book seeks to remedy this omission, presenting a dispassionate and accurate account of Rogers' rollercoaster life, without recourse to moral judgment.
