Dr Robert N. Watt is a lecturer in the Department of Political Science and International Studies (POLSIS) at the University of Birmingham, UK. His main area of research is into the Apache Wars of 1860-1886, with particular reference to the Victorio Campaign of 1879-1881. He has made numerous archive and field trips to the USA and has visited most of the areas where the Victorio Campaign took place - including Tres Castillos in Northern Mexico, where Victorio was killed in October 1880. He has published articles on Victorio, the Apaches and the US Army in Small Wars & Insurgencies, The New Mexico Historical Review, War in History, Southwestern Historical Quarterly and The Journal of Military History. He has also published two books with Osprey on the 'Apache Warrior' and 'Apache Tactics' and taught a module on American Indian Wars for the History Department, the University of Birmingham. He has also published an article on the Red Army in the Second World War and has lectured on Soviet Deep Battle/Operations for a module in the same department.
This tale of Victorio and Nana and their Chihenne Apaches as they
take on the might of the Ninth Cavalry is inspirational and
enthralling, and this book will go down in the annals of American
history as an account of their humiliation because of their
policies against the indigenous Indian peoples. * Books Monthly
