Description - The Geronimo Campaign by Odie B. Faulk
On August 25 1886, the Apache chief, Geronimo, surrendered to the US Army, ending a long and bloody struggle. This book draws on fresh evidence to examine the ironies, dangers and vicissitudes of the US Army's campaign against the Apache tribe. Based on the papers collected by Lt Charles Gatewood - the one white man Geronimo trusted - including depositions from old soldiers and scouts, official documents, articles, letters and photographs, the book argues that it was essentially a war without victory. The Apaches (like the Sioux, Comanche and Nez Pierce before them), lost their land and lifestyles, while the Americans lost all that the tribes might have contributed to the union and more than a measure of national self-respect.
