5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Gary B. Null on September 20, 2005
Format: Paperback
Having spent some time growing up in the American Southwest, I had a passing familiarity with the Apaches. However, it was much later while I was serving in the U.S. Marine Corps that I became fascinated with these fierce warrior people. The Marines appreciated any warrior culture and part of our martial arts training included us studying famous warrior cultures, to include the Apache. Here was a nation that conducted a guerilla war (before the term was even invented) against the might of the American military for several decades before finally succumbing to disease, defeat and sedition.

This book is an excellent introduction to the Apache Warrior Culture. The diction is succint and to the point. The historic photographs are particulary fascinating as are the beautiful artisitic plates that exist in the text. If you are looking for an in depth study of the Apaches - particulary one that explores outside the subject of war - then I would look elsewhere. However, if you want a clear, concise and relevant first look into the Apache War Machine, then this book will not disappoint.

Format: Paperback
Excellent illustrations, numerous photographs of apache weapons, warriors and people. Many of these photographs can not be found on the internet or in other books. This book is invaluable as a resource for studying the Apache of old. Like the other reviewer said, there are more books with a larger volume of history, but the pictures and color plates are well worth the price alone!
