Summary

On a dark day in April 1865, a band of former Confederate guerrillas slaughtered more than 40 Comanches, most of them women and children. This began a six-month reign of terror along the Santa Fe Trail as Comanche chief, White Eagle, took his revenge. The US Cavalry was assigned the task of tracking White Eagle and his warriors down.

Lieutenant Colonel Ignatius O'Sullivan's orders were to either bring them in or kill them. O'Sullivan, with two companies of cavalry, tracked the Comanches through the mountains for more than six weeks, until....

O'Sullivan took to the trail in July of 1865, and followed them into the mountains along the northern border of Comanche lands. Can he bring the wily chief and his well-armed warriors to bay? Can his soldiers fight the Comanche on their own ground? And which of them will survive the battle?

A terrific story

Comanche masterfully combines history and fiction into an entertaining piece of historical fiction about the Indian wars. The story has horrible violence which the author mercifully fades out before it becomes to much for the reader to bare. The characters are complicated, and some leave the reader torn as to whether they are truly heroes or villains. The narrator of the audiobook does a terrific job bringing the story to life.

Comanche

Wow! This was just an awesome listen, I could not stop listening from the time I started, This was the first book by Blair Howard for me, in fact I never even heard his name before, but now I want to read or listen to more of his work, and the narrator was quite good also, so if you like historical fiction based on some true events, this is the book for you.

Gripping Story of History

Comanche Chief White Eagle wanted revenge, after a gang of ex confederates running from the Federal troops and then killing mostly woman and children. Historical event happened on Sand Creek. A gripping tale, and heartbreaking of what happened Given audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

Good story... too much "Irish" accent.

I've read and enjoyed all of Blair Howard's Harry Starke series... this was my first of his Civil War / Western stories. I have always been sympathetic to the "Indian" POV re: this dark period of American history... but am conflicted as to Sherman's methods. My only "but" to this audiobook is the over-the-top Irish accent used for O'Sullivan. IMO, it was overdone by half and detracted from the story. I see other narrators are used in the other books in this series... good!

Enjoyable tale of the west.

This is an interesting and well-told story through the eyes of one cavalry officer. I enjoyed the tale thoroughly and have no problem recommending it to any western fan. My only complaint is that this is the third book of a series and I have not had the pleasure of experiencing the first two volumes. This third book can live on its own though. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.
