A good year to die : the story of the great Sioux War by Charles M Robinson( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was 1876, The Black Hills, which overlap the boundary between South Dakota and Wyoming, had become the last important battleground of a tragic war against the Indians. The Indians were to be trapped in a three-pronged attack by General Crook, General Terry, and Colonel Custer, but the rugged country - where the temperature could often dip thirty to forty degrees in just a few hours - thwarted almost every foray. By the time the campaign had ended, the army had suffered several major reversals: Custer and his troops were massacred at the Little Bighorn and General George Crook met with near-disaster at the Rosebud; the brilliant Oglala Sioux chief Crazy Horse was dead; Sitting Bull and his band had been driven to Canada; and the military power of the Sioux and the Northern Cheyennes was broken. The government achieved its aims, but the casualties both sides had suffered made these wars the most unnecessary ever fought between the federal government and the Indians

General Crook and the western frontier by Charles M Robinson( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles M. Robinson pieces together the contradictions of Crook's career to reveal that although the general sometimes micromanaged his campaigns to the point that his officers had virtually no flexibility, he gave his officers so much freedom on other occasions that they did not fully understand his expectations or objectives. Crook resented any criticism and was quick to blame both subordinates and superiors, yet Robinson shows that much of Crook's success in the Indian wars can be attributed to the efforts of subordinate officers. He also details Crook's later efforts to provide equal rights and opportunities for American Indians."--Jacket

Written for both the specialist and the casual reader, Texas and the Mexican War discusses the pivotal role Texas played in the Mexican War, battles fought on Texas soil, and the contributions-for better or sometimes worse-of Texas troops throughout the war. Since the opening of hostilities in 1846, the Mexican War has remained controversial. Author Charles M.

Lieutenant Henry O. Flipper was a former slave who rose to become the first African American graduate of West Point.
