    One thought on “Buffalo Soldiers

    1. Laura on said:

      The year is 1866, and the setting is a frontier train station in Kansas. The Civil War has finally ground to a halt, the South is in the midst of reconstruction, and the newly freed slaves are adrift: no longer bound to their masters, but unsure how to make a life for themselves. Many African-American men decided to earn pride, money, identity, and a measure of respect by enlisting in the United States Army. Those who were placed in the cavalry became known as Buffalo Soldiers.So back to 1866 an [...]

      This novel tells the little-known story of life as an African American soldier in the 10th Cavalry, a "colored" regiment in the post-Civil War West. It portrays well the strength, dignity, and pride of performing a job well done even in the face of virulent prejudice on the part of the settlers whom the soldiers were striving to protect. The prose isn't especially polished, and the author has trouble deciding whether he wants to tell the story from a third-person limited or an omniscient perspec [...]

      Willard writes very similar in the tales of W.E.B. Griffin in "Brotherhood of War." However, Willard follows the family line of a black soldier on the American frontier from the days of the Apache wars through the Gulf War. Not all blood and guts, but the touching story of an American family surviving and contributing to our martial history. This volume chronicles the story of one particular soldier and the woman he loves. The brutality acted out upon her by Texas rangers is repugnant, but illus [...]

      I'm kind of a book theif. I will take books from my siblings and mom because our taste in books are so different. It's always fun to read something you wouldn't usually read. I "borrowed" it from my brother without permission. I was aching to read something different and this caught my eye. I was really into this and couldn't put it down unless I was going to sleep. I was so gripped by the story and characters.

      ~3.5 Stars~This was fine, but in the way that it was very soap-opera with a lot of twists and turns that seemed very out-of-the-blue. I do realize that, yes, bad things were happening, but there was just about no build-up - it's like fanfiction where the author has sort of gone power-mad and decide that they cankill anyone they want this is how writing is ahahaha But it was fun. I enjoyed it more than I really want to admit. It was fun, just not, objectively speaking, good.

      Excellent mix of fact and fiction for a historical fiction account of the Ninth Cavalry and the Buffalo Soldiers. A bit hard to follow at times as the writer switches POV character, often in the middle of a scene.

    7. Ben on said:

      Very interesting book and a pretty quick read. Not sure how much is true or based on true stories or completely fabricated, but it was very entertaining and a different take on a lot of classical western stories.

      Another book club book. The story was wonderful but I wanted to know more about the characters. Lots of facts, little character development

      This is a hard set of books to find in print, but they are truly worth the search to find and read
