5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book! 14 Nov 2001
By Fernando I. Moreno Villa - Published on
A great book about the development of uniforms, military organization and equipment of the US Cavalry in the XIX century. Incredible detailed and superb color plates by Ron Volstad. Excelent to complement other related titles about US Cavalry and American Plain Wars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A helpful resource 15 Aug 2010

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I referred to this book over and over as I wrote my novel, The Dawn of a Dream. The text and illustrations are exactly what I needed for reference. I'd recommend U.S. Cavalry on the Plains to any student of America's military history in the west.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible book full of misinformation 12 July 2012
By Donna II - Published on
Don't waste your money on this book unless, of course, you want to read propaganda and lies that are a gross distortion of the historical record. Full of one sided, inaccurate descriptions of Indians and absurd fairy tales about 'heroic' whites who never did any wrong. Shame on the author and publisher for printing this drivel. It sounds right out of the 1950s.
