Gary Zaboly's entry in the Osprey Warrior series focuses on rangers on the American frontier. It's everything you'd want from this series on this topic. Though it's lessons could be applied to all rangers from this period, Zaboly draws heavily from Robert Rogers' writings on rangers. The text focuses on marksmanship, camp life and discipline, dress, as well as some of the important actions Rogers' Rangers participated in. It is well supported by Zaboly's own excellent color plates, which show a variety of rangers in training and battle motifs. The plate descriptions also do a super job of supporting the plates
