Robert Roger's Rangers II
I did feel a need for more research on my part during and after reading it, so I could place the actions in geography. I feel the book would do well to have either a companion book, or an expanded edition, where maps of the areas spoken of were supplied, and possibly also more information on the actions mentioned to give a broader context. I'm sure these books do exist, but if they don't, they should. Ah, a job for another day. Maybe once I'm retired and have more time on my hands than I know what to do with.
I should (re)mention here, in terms of other blogs covering the era, Flintlock and Tomahawk does a fine job. No, I'm not being paid commission, but I do think it's an apt journal to link to, especially since there's a recent post about a re-enactment of the "Battle on Snowshoes".
