About this title

Synopsis:

The drama of "Warriors in Uniform" begins in the 18th Century, in the French and Indian Wars. It builds through the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, into WWI and II, and heightens in Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq. Spiritual, poignant, compelling, even shocking (warriors still took scalps in Vietnam), "Warriors in Uniform", through compelling narrative in six chapters, and 150 gorgeous, little-known photographs, regalia, and other artifacts, reveals how ancient traditions of war persevere, and how to be revered as a warrior is the greatest honor a Native American can hold.Packed with first-person accounts from each major war, and revealing little-known insights into a culture that is still mystical and misunderstood, "Warriors in Uniform" provides a page-turning story as well as a stunning gallery of never-before-seen artifacts from personal collections. Filled with anecdotes, memoirs, quotes, letters, songs, poems, and eulogies, this book is for everyone who loves literature, spirituality, and a new story of the first Americans.

About the Author:

Herman J. Viola is a longstanding author, educator, and curator. A former director at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, he was the driving force in founding the museum's National Anthropological Archives, which kept the first Native American records. He has written more than a dozen history books on Native Americans, on America during the time of Columbus, and on war.
