"Author John F. Winkler expertly examines the Army’s controversial calamity, analyzing what went wrong and how the Indians scored such a complete victory. Superb color plates by Peter
Dennis depicting woodlands combat are complemented by period illustrations, maps and photos showing everything from artifacts and re-enactors to the present-day site of the clash. This concise, 96-page book is a fascinating look at a relatively little-known battle, especially considering how the Army suffered triple the number of casualties at the Wabash than were much more famously slaughtered by the Sioux and their allies at Custer’s Last Stand in 1876."
