But it is the second part of the book--seven chapters labeled "Facets"--that moves Centennial Campaign into the realm of the exceptional. Here Dr. Gray combines impressive research, careful analysis, and sound deduction to reconstruct Indian movements, locations, and concentrations."--"Western Historical Quarterly"Hide synopsis

Excellent historiography recounting the U.S. Army?s war against the Sioux in 1876, well written with detailed references to the political machinations which enacted the campaign and analysis reconstructing the order of battle, movements and actions, a necessary preamble to the later masterwork Custer?s Last Campaign: Mitch Boyer and the Little Bighorn Reconstructed. The first chapter is an insightful reference to understanding the inherent conflict between free-ranging plains Indian and the press of white settlement, two ways of life that could not share the same land, even if the outcome was tragically predictable and known to each.
