KIRKUS REVIEW

Reminiscences of an Army man, pretty dead level reading, which may have a certain -- though slight -- documentary interest. Cruse left the Point to go to frontier posts in Arizona and New Mexico, there engaging in skirmishes with the resentful, rebellious Apaches led by Geronimo, Victorio and the ""Medicine Man"" whose revivals led to insurrection. His later years brought work in the army supply line, from wagon and mule transportation during the Spanish-American War to a post as Quartermaster in the Philippines, and eventually his rise to Colonel and Brigadier General. The fact that the material is edited by Eugene Cunningham speaks for its authenticity.
