THE LONG-KNIVES
U.S. Cavalry Series
PATRICK E. ANDREWS


Hollywood director John Ford was by no means the first person to recognize the true spectacle and romance of the cavalry story, but his cavalry trilogy—SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON, RIO GRANDE and FORT APACHE—certainly brought it to a wider audience. Who can fail to be caught up in stories of officers and enlisted men, often poorly paid – if they were paid at all – under-nourished and badly treated by their largely-indifferent masters in far-off Washington? Risking their lives to make the frontier a safer place for settlers, the cavalry became heroic figures to many, and the promise of action and excitement generated by the sight of army blue still continues today. Patrick E. Andrews captures the hardships of life on the frontier for ... The Long-Knives.

1: CROSSED ARROWS

It's the 1890s, and the Indian Wars have finally come to an end. Captain Mack Hawkins is ordered to take command of one of the first units of the recently organized U.S. Scouts. For the first time in American military history, these tribesmen are being allowed to enlist as fully-accepted soldiers in the United States Army. Hawkins' new command is the Kiowa-Comanche Detachment, and he has little time to turn his team of former nomadic prairie warriors into an efficient, disciplined fighting unit. If he doesn't, they're sure to be wiped out on their first mission of tracking down the outlaws who stole an army payroll.

SABERS WEST

At war's end, Guy Dubose—owning no skill except soldiering—joined up with the U.S. Army, donning the same Yankee blue he'd been lining up in his rifle sights for the last five bloody years. Quartered with society's lowliest at Fort Linden, the unreconstructed Rebel found himself in a whole other kind of shooting match, this time on the wild Texas frontier. But fighting was fighting, be his opponent Bluebelly or Redskin, and where the gunsmoke was the thickest was where Guy DuBose aimed to be.
For Fort Linden's commander, Captain Gordon Blackburn, however, the lives of a few insignificant Johnny Rebs was a small price to pay for a seat behind a Washington desk. Either Sergeant DuBose and his misfits would earn their captain a hero's rep—or they'd end up watering down the Texas dust with their blood!

    GUNSMOKE AT POWDER RIVER

Captain Charles Riker had been ordered to march his company of social misfits and raw recruits deep into Sioux territory. It was a land of heat and blistering winds, where daydreaming could separate a man from his scalplock. When Indian patrols spotted the bluecoat interlopers, they set upon them with burning powder and hot lead. But when Riker and his command turn back, they find their retreat to the main body of troops cut off by the avenging Sioux.
Outnumbered by hundreds to one in a Montana wilderness where good men could be living one moment and dying the next, Riker must lead his band across long miles of open country to the nearest outpost at Tongue River. But nobody said it would be easy. They're short on rations and ammunition ... but hell, they're long on determination and guts.

    BLOOD OF APACHE MESA

Wildon Boothe was as innocent as a newborn babe when he lit out for the Arizona frontier. The band-playing military pomp of West Point did nothing to prepare the young shavetail for the man-killing wasteland of Apache Mesa. but if the Army send him to Hell itself, young Lieutenant Boothe would serve. Life on the range wasn't exactly going to be easy on his beautiful young wife, either. They'd sworn to stay hitched until death did them part. But with a marauding gang of renegade bandidos on the loose, it could be that they'd be split up sooner than either of them expected!
