A suggestion from a listener
How about a book written by the first American Army Ranger?

Church, Benjamin; Church, Thomas; Drake, Samuel Gardner. (1852). The History of the Great Indian War of 1675 and 1676, Commonly Called Philip's War, Also, the Old French and Indian Wars, from 1689 to 1704. Hartford, Conn: SILAS ANDRUS & SON. Retrieved from https://archive.org/details/historyofgreatin00churrich

According to the RANGER HANDBOOK: "Rangers mainly performed defensive missions until, during King Philip's War in 1675, Benjamin Church's Company of Independent Rangers (from Plymouth Colony) conducted successful raids on hostile Indians."

Church was inducted into the US Army Ranger Hall of Fame: http://www.ranger.org/Resources/Documents/RHOF%20Master%20List%20%2805-24-2013%29.pdf
