About the Book

This book should be required reading for any student of the battles the U.S. cavalry fought against the Sioux and Cheyennes from 1866 to 1877. All of the engagements are studied in detail and Brady had the great fortune to get first-hand accounts of the fighting from soldiers in the field during those hostilities. Brady's work is a pleasant read with a swift narrative and the love of his work is present on every page. The tone of Brady's book seems to suggests sympathy for the Indian plight because of the U.S. government's unfair posture that backed the Sioux and Cheyenne into a corner with no choice but to defend their homeland and hunting grounds. However, Brady is writing history from the white man's point of view and his bias creeps into his book on occasion. There are several pages of interesting correspondence between Brady and officers of the Seventh Cavalry regarding Custer's orders from General Terry and the letter and spirit of those orders. Great history and writing from the Reverend Brady.
