About the Author

Paul Magid is a retired attorney who worked with the Peace Corps, then served as General Counsel of the African Development Foundation. Since leaving government in 1999, he has devoted himself to research and writing about General Crook.


Paul Magid looks at Major General George Crook before he became a nationally famous Indian fighter. We see the development of his respect for Indians as human beings and of his lifelong disgust with government Indian policy. Magid also follows him through the Civil War, where Crook honed his command abilities and learned that advancement is based less on merit than on connections and publicity, a lesson he never forgot. Magid's book is a valuable addition to frontier, Civil War, and military biography."" - Charles M. Robinson III author of General Crook and the Western Frontier

""Paul Magid has provided the best and most complete work on George Crook's Civil War service. Thoughtful, lucid, critical, and engaging, this is a thoroughly enjoyable read by a talented writer who tells a story well."" - Thomas ""Ty"" Smith author of The Old Army in Texas and The U.S. Army and the Texas Frontier Economy

""Magid's stellar prose is one of the book's strengths. . . . He presents an unabashedly critical portrayal of Crook's failures at the Battle of Antietam."" - Civil War Times
