Overview

Focusing on the Chiricahua Apache, led by such famous warriors as Cochise Mangas Coloradas, Victorio, Nana and Geronimo, this book strips away the myths behind the history of some of the feared opponents of the US Army in the southwest United States. It explains how their upbringing, training and culture equipped them uniquely for survival in the harsh environment of New Mexico and Arizona and enabled them to fight off their Mexican and American enemies for so long.

For decades legendary Apaches like Victorio and Geronimo led resistance in the desert Southwest that defied the firepower of the post Civil War US Army. The Apache warrior evokes a number of images; endurance, elusive cunning, ferocity, and cruelty. These are images prevalent both during the Apache Wars of the 1860s to the 1880s and are, to some extent, still believed today. General George Crook described them as "Human Tigers."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This 64-page paperback concisely outlines how their upbringing, training and culture uniquely equipped them for survival in the harsh environment of Arizona and New Mexico. The text is illuminated by photos, maps, illustrations and marvelous color plates by Adam Hook showing Apaches’ appearance, weapons, equipment and tactics. This book delivers insights into why the Apaches’ abilities and endurance enabled them to keep fighting their American and Mexican adversaries long after many other North American tribes had been subdued." —Toy Soldier & Model Figure

"...focuses on the Chiricahua Apache, lead by Geronimo and others, and looks to prove a military history of the Apaches free of the usual embellishments and myths. This group proved the most feared opponents of the US Army in the Southwest United States: their upbringing and training are covered in a powerful survey paired with photos and color artwork throughout, recommended for military history and Native American collections alike." - James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review (October 2014)

    Very Informative

    This book is an excellent reference for anyone interested in the Southwest of the mid to late 19th century; the Apache campaigns of that time; and guerrilla warfare. You won't be disappointed nor go wrong with this volume!
