About this title


In this remarkable journal, an observant and opinionated cavalry private offers an inside look at a soldier's life during the Indian Wars of the 1870s. One of the few enlisted men to keep a diary, Private William F. Zimmer participated in the closing campaign of the Great Sioux War. Later, under the command of Colonel Nelson A. Miles, Zimmer fought at the climatic Battle of the Bear's Paw Mountains, the battle that led to Chief Joseph's famous surrender. Frontier Soldier expands our understanding of military dynamics during the Indian Wars and offers an honest view of army life from the perspective of the rank and file.
