Format: Paperback
This book provides an excellent overview of what these warriors wore but little on tactics, strategy and the men themselves (backgrounds, etc.). Excellent reference for model and figurine builders but not for those interested in what was beneath the surface.

As a history teacher, I think it is essential to continue to tell the story to future generations of Americans. The many diverse tribes of Native Americans that covered North America all have vastly unique and incredible stories to learn from and share.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book tackles the topic of the Sioux tribes for fought for, or more often against, the US in the mid-late 19th Century. It is a detailed source on the clothing and material culture of these peoples, and also provides a good foundation for the study of their culture. My reason for giving it only three stars is that it strays from the main thrust of the Osprey Men-at-Arms series. Easily half the figures in the plates are either women or unarmed males, and the text does not discuss the armament of fighting styles of these warrriors in detail. For someone like me who is seeking an Osprey book that is truly about the Amerindian warriors, there are better alternatives (notably Comanche 1800-1875).
