Battle Orders #05: US Army in the Plains Indian Wars 1865-1890

Battle Orders #05: US Army in the Plains Indian Wars 1865-1890 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Plains Indian War was one of the most controversial conflicts in American military history, as the US Army faced a tough opponent that challenged it for decades following the end of the Civil War. The Army leadership endured a severe lack of resources, political constraints, an indifferent public, tough environmental conditions, and other problems of the frontier. Army officers and men had to adapt to these constraints, and this period also proved to be a trial of the ability and endurance of the common soldier. This title details the organization, development, training, tactics and command structures of the US Army during its subjugation of the Plains Indian tribes.

Synopsis:

At the outbreak of the Plains Indian War, the American Civil War veterans of the US Army found themselves confronted with a very different enemy. This book examines the evolution of the US Army during a period of rapid change, covering all of the major actions of the wars.
