9780806137551: Yellowstone Command: Colonel Nelson A. Miles and the Great Sioux War, 1876–1877

Shortly after Custer’s defeat in the Battle of the Little Bighorn, Colonel Nelson A. Miles and his Fifth Infantry launched several significant campaigns to destroy the Lakota Northern Cheyenne coalition in the Yellowstone River basin. Miles’s expeditions involved relentless pursuit and attack throughout the winter months, culminating in the Lame Deer Fight of May 1877, the last major engagement of the Great Sioux War.

Yellowstone Command is the first detailed account of the harrowing 1876 1877 campaigns. Drawing from Indian testimonies and many previously untapped sources, Jerome A. Greene reconstructs the ambitious battles of Colonel Miles and his foot soldiers. This paperback edition of Yellowstone Command features a new preface by the author.

From the Back Cover:

'Perhaps some prefer myth to reality, but those who wish to know what it was really like on campaign in the West in the 1870s would scarcely do better than to read this riveting account.'--Washington Times
