Warriors in Uniform: The Legacy of American Indian Heroism


warriors_in_uniforn.jpgThis illustrated history covers the last Confederate general—a Cherokee—to lay down his arms; the code talkers who used tribal languages to help win World War II; the first Native American woman to give her life as a soldier; those serving in Iraq today; and many others. Spiritual and gripping, this book reveals how ancient traditions of war persevere and how the “warrior” designation is a great honor to the Native American community. Full of first person accounts and a stunning gallery of never-before-seen artifacts from personal collections. Former senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell and other distinguished Native Americans contributed to the collection.
