By Dale Withroder on September 7, 2006
Format: Hardcover
The first book in the series that I read. Cozzens provides a nice introduction, followed by a great series of primary documents, grouped by event. Beecher's Island is an example of an event, and there are several accounts from the men who fought there. Each account is well footnoted, and the footnotes themselves make for great reading. Maps are included inside front and back covers showing forts, battle sites, etc. Illustrations throughout.

These series of books are unique in that they are written from writings of the participants of the battles and campaigns. One thing that is tough is that the same thing is repeated from several different people sometimes. there is some very unique info that way but some repitition to.

Great historical work. Chock full of differing accounts of incidents from the regular foot soldier to the Indians themselves. Every page lends insights to life in the late 19 century and the fate of the American Indians battle against civilization.

Great oversight of the Indian Wars of the late 19th Century. This story is told from those that experienced it, which is the best form of history you can get.
