"Comprehensive...detailed...the author should be commended for the fine prose...well-illustrated with photographs of the major participants and maps detailing the scene of action...an outstanding contribution to our understanding of cavalry operations in the western theater...belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in the mounted army during the Civil War." --Civil War History
"This book is a gem, cut, polished and faceted perfectly to let a terrific story gleam through...well-researched, fanatically footnoted, brilliantly readable." --Civil War Interactive
"The great merit of Keenan's study...is that it shows why Wilson began badly and why he finished superbly." --Crossfire
