KIRKUS REVIEW

Remember the Alamo,"" Geronimo Paucho Villa, the Rough Riders--many of the well-known events in American history involve the cavalry. Starting with the first U.S. horse soldiers during the Revolutionary War, Mr. Butterworth takes us through the Civil War, the Indian wars, the Spanish-American War, the Mexican border fights, World War I down to today when the 1st Cavalry Air Mobile is saddling up its helicopters in Vietnam. The battles of the greatest American ""soldiers on horseback"" are described in some detail with no interference from information about personal affairs. The young reader interested in horses and warfare will find here a history of American conflicts organized by cavalry encounters, mobilized to hold his attention.
