Nez Perce 1877: The last fight (Campaign) (Paperback)
Peter Dennis was inspired by contemporary magazines such as Look and Learn, leading him to study Illustration at Liverpool Art College. Peter has since contributed to hundreds of books, predominantly on historical subjects, including many Osprey titles. A keen wargamer and modelmaker, he is based in Nottinghamshire, UK.
“The text is enhanced by full-color illustrations by Peter Dennis. The artwork is complemented by more than 60 photographs obtained from the U.S. Army Military History Institute, the U.S. Cavalry Museum at Fort Riley, the Nez Perce National Historic Park and the Montana Historical Society. Totaling 96 pages, this book is a concise and informative account of the last major U.S. act of war against Indians.” —Toy Soldier & Model Figure (May 2011)
“Nez Perce 1877: The Last Fight provides a fine addition to Osprey's 'Campaign' series, detailing command strategies and tactics, and covers the Nez Perce, who refused to surrender and accept resettlement. Instead, Chief Joseph organized some 750 warriors and ran the Canadian border -- and nearly made it. Black and white and color photos and maps throughout illustrated by Peter Dennis enhance an outstanding survey!” —The Midwest Book Review
