Great Sioux War Orders of Battle - How the United States Army Waged War on the Nothern Plains, 1876-1877

Great Sioux War Orders of Battle - How the United States Army Waged War on the Nothern Plains, 1876-1877
by Hedren, Paul

2-194680

A unique resource with a new perspective on the US Army in the Great Sioux War.

By the time it ended, the Great Sioux War had played out on twenty-seven different battlefields scattered across five states. In this compelling sourcebook, Hedren uses extensive documentation to demonstrate that the American army adapted quickly to the challenges of fighting this unconventional war and was more effectively led and better equipped than is customarily believed. While it lost at Powder River and at the Little Big Horn, it did not lose the Great Sioux War.

In the first part of this volume, Hedren considers concepts of doctrine, training, culture, and materiel to aid understanding of the army's structure and disposition. In part two he dissects the twenty-eight Great Sioux War deployments in chronological order, including documentation of command structures, regiments, and companies employed. In the concluding section, the author addresses how an otherwise sound American army was defeated in two battles and nearly lost a third. The book also features seven helpful appendices, a glossary, and an oversized map showing forts, encampments, and battle sites.
