about

Frontiersmen in Blue is a comprehensive history of the achievements and failures of the United States Regular and Volunteer Armies that confronted the Indian tribes of the West in the two decades between the Mexican War and the close of the Civil War. Between 1848 and 1865 the men in blue fought nearly all of the western tribes. Robert Utley describes many of these skirmishes in consummate detail, including descriptions of garrison life that was sometimes agonizingly isolated, sometimes caught in the lightning moments of desperate battle.
Robert M. Utley is recognized as one of the leading historians of the American West. He is the author of the much-acclaimed Billy the Kid: A Short and Violent Life, published by the University of Nebraska Press in 1989, and of the award-winning books Cavalier in Buckskin: George Armstrong Custer and the Western Military Frontier (1988)...

Editorial Reviews

"One of [the book’s] several impressive features is the author’s talent for drawing from the indispensable detail of campaigns those significant trends in frontier military policy. Certainly Utley has applied creative management to a great mass of military minutiae and given it a meaningful, readable format."—Arrell M. Gibson, American Historical Review
