This book was the first and one of the most detailed works on that topic. Beecher's Island, The Wagon Box Battle and dozens of others from the Plains to the Deserts of the Southwest.

If you're looking for a reliable text on the history of the American frontier period, particularly that of the Indian Wars, this is not it. Not by any stretch of professional standards in the discipline of history would I recommend this as a good example of historical narrative.

I'm one of those guys who Loved the Westerns that dealt with the Indian Wars. I devoured any films or books that dealt with the struggle that defined Guerilla Warfare and the skills and courage of those involved with it. This book was the first and one of the most detailed works on that topic. Beecher's Island, The Wagon Box Battle and dozens of others from the Plains to the Deserts of the Southwest. It goes into the life of the Soldier at the time and the culture of the Warrior he opposed. There are other books on the topic "40 Miles a Day on Beans and Hay" by Rickey and "On the Border with Crook" by John G Bourke to name two. This book combines most of the campaigns in one volume and does a great job of putting you in the saddle and knowing the fear of a young soldier scared that he will be separated from his troop and left to the horrible fate of slow death by a foe who measures his enemy by how long it takes them to die under torture. The worry of men who know their families are alone when a war party decides to leave the reservation and the frustration of West Point Trained Officers and Civil War Veterans who can't find the enemy, much like Officers in the Vietnam conflict and later, in Iraq and Afghanistan. A good read for the military professional and history buff as well and anyone who likes the thrill of the Old West.

Beechers Island, The Wagon Box Fight and the Lava Rocks where the Modocs fought the last of the real Plains War fights are all covered here. Well written and pretty dynamic. Some of the details of the tortures suffered by hapless captives of the Indians as well as the atrocities carried out by White Soldiers and Mexicans are hard to read. Time is spent on what is must have been like to have been a trooper on the frontier and the reality of heavy, uncomfortable wool uniforms, scant pay and questionable leadership paints a different view than John Ford's movies with John Wayne as the dauntless Cavalry officer. The tough, often brilliant, always fearless enemy, the Plains Indian, is depicted fairly and in some places one wonders if it wouldn't have been better if they had stopped the expansion West. Of course, "progress" marched on and, Like the Societies before them, the Indian (or Native American to those who prefer) gave way to the European, who proved just as ruthless when claiming territory for himself. I read this book when I was in Junior High School and it led to an interest in the Indian conflicts of our country that never faded. Custer, Chivington and, my favorite story and one that I used when teaching small unit tactics when I was in the Army, Lt Fetterman's Tree cutting detail, are all discussed here. A good book if you are into this part of American History or a fan of the Old West. Maybe a bit overdone in some parts, but I overlook that and recommend it.
