In Bayonets in the Wilderness, Alan D. Gaff explores a long-neglected period in American history to tell the complete story of how the U.S. Army conquered the first American frontier, the Northwest Territory. Wayne’s successful campaign led to the creation of a standing army for the country and set the standard for future conflicts and treaties with American Indians. Countering the popular impression of Wayne as “mad,” Gaff depicts him as a thoughtful, resolute, and diplomatic officer whose masterfully organized campaign brought an end in 1794 to forty years of border fighting. Gaff’s account brings to light alliances between Indian forces and the British military, demonstrating that British troops still conducted operations on American soil long after the supposed end of the American Revolution.… (més)

A comprehensive narrative account that takes you from the demise of the ill-fated St. Claire expedition to the death of General Wayne. To a large degree the meat of this book is the documentation of the logistical and organizational struggles Wayne underwent to pull together the Legion of the United States, a matter not helped by James Wilkinson's feud with his commander. One point that particularly captured my attention is apparently how close the Fallen Timbers campaign came to provoking war with the British empire, as Gaff does take some pains to put this adventure in its international context.

A great book about a little known campaign in American history. This book follows the Indian war in the Old Northwest from the disasterous Battle of the Monongahela in 1792 to the triumph at Fallen Timbers and the peace that followed. Well written and well researched. ( )
