Benedict Arnold's Navy by James L. Nelson (2006). A history covering the early years on the northern front during the Revolutionary War. It is still shocking how close it was to folding Canada into the grasping arms of the United Colonies. Pretty close, eh Jock?
Anyway, the book is a long long exposition on how tough those frontier soldiers were. If you ever read Undaunted Courage by Steve Ambrose (1996) then you have some idea.
