With just 80 soldiers, Captain Fetterman boasted that he could defeat the entire Lakota nation. In 1866, after the Civil War, he would get his chance against Lakota chief Red Cloud. Fetterman's failure forced a negotiated peace treaty conceding every demand by the Lakota Told from the perspective of fictional warrior, Brave Eagle, this newly revised edition features digitally enhanced artwork, completely revised text, a brand new layout, and a fascinating foreword by Robert Lewis.
