Some brief overview of this book

"Regarded as a 'killing gentleman' by none other than King George III, Rogers is a fearsome hunter and tracker, America's most notorious mercenary. With only one allegiance – to himself". -AMC's "Turn" TV Series Website Robert Rogers (1731 – 1795) was an American colonial frontiersman.

Rogers served in the British army during both the French and Indian War and the American "Regarded as a 'killing gentleman' by none other than King George III, Rogers is a fearsome hunter and tracker, America's most notorious mercenary. With only one allegiance – to himself". -AMC's "Turn" TV Series Website Robert Rogers (1731 – 1795) was an American colonial frontiersman.

Rogers served in the British army during both the French and Indian War and the American Revolution. During the French and Indian War Rogers raised and commanded the famous Roger's Rangers trained for raiding and close combat behind enemy lines. During the Revolutionary War Rogers raised and commanded the Queen's Rangers.

After having first offered his services to George Washington during the Revolutionary War, only to be imprisoned, Rogers escaped and offered his services to the British. Nevins writes: "Here Rogers was received with open arms. Not merely had Howe been assured of his ability and held previous communication with him, but to an army composed largely of men untrained in New World methods of fighting, unfamiliar with the enemy, and entirely uncertain of the ground over which it must pass, he seemed a valuable accession.

He knew intimately the whole central region along the Hudson and toward Philadelphia in which Howe was to operate, and the temper and immediate resources of the Americans; and he had many Tory friends in the neighboring boroughs whom he could induce to enter the British army. In the first days of August, he was given the title of Lieutenant-Colonel, and empowered to muster a battalion of loyalists, to be called the "Queen's American Rangers". These rangers stand among the most picturesque of all the troops which have served on the American continent, for both temper and appearance answered well to their rough and audacious life.

Most of them were the resolute sons of the border villages and farms, inured, like their commander, to the fatigues of harassing and unbelievable journeys, the extremes of heat and cold, and distressing privations of food and shelter during long periods; fearless, steady of nerve, and resourceful of mind. Their life in the field was one of infinite vigilance and hourly readiness for action. Allan Nevins ( 1890 – 1971) was an American historian and journalist, renowned for his extensive work on the history of the Civil War and his biographies of such figures as President Grover Cleveland, Hamilton Fish, Henry Ford, and John D.

Rockefeller, as well as his public service. Nevins wrote his first book, The Life of Robert Rogers (1914) while completing postgraduate studies at the University of Illinois. It was included in the Caxton Club's 1914 edition of Robert Roger's "Ponteach, Or, The Savages of America".
