Title: Olson`s Ranger
Post by: Lone-Wolf on 31 March 2021, 06:26:46
I was rereading the Mercenary books and I came upon Olson`s Rangers.

According to history the 1st Cunningham Commandoes raided the Rangers and captured Colonel Olson. And he was never ransomed back. In the end the Rangers ware taken by WoB and turned into half Manei Domini.

The entry on Cunningham Commandoes doesn`t contain any information regarding this. (I may be wrong...)

Can you tell us, why Colonel Olsen was captured, why he was never ransomed back and what happened to them after the Jihad?
(I suspect they were given jail sentences but later released.)
