Review quote

"This meticulously documented book ... , based on Army records and firsthand reports, should stand as definitive. [It] is, by far, the best account yet of Fort Phil Kearny and the stirring events that took place... A must for devotees of Western Americana."-Robert F. Hannon, St. Louis Post-Dispatch -- Robert F. Hannon St. Louis Post-Dispatch "For the first time we have the detailed story of all the little fights that preceded the major disaster... It is one of the best studies that has been made of any sector of the Indian wars."-Don Russell, Chicago Sunday Tribune -- Don Russell Chicago Sunday Tribune
