Summary
Agnew, an Englishman who attended college in Colorado and has remained there ever since, offers this account of what it was like to serve as a soldier in the United States military in the midst of the Indian Wars that lasted from the 1840s to the 1890s. The book provides a drastic comparison between life in the frontier armies and today's military, with stories of rotting food, harsh living conditions and brutal modes of discipline and punishment, all for just pennies a day. Written in a concise and entertaining style, Agnew also includes photographs and illustrations from the era. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
