And Hell Followed With Him
Ranald MacKenzie can do anything, at least that’s how it seems to friend and foe alike. From Bull Run to Appomattox, the tireless and endlessly resourceful MacKenzie marches from one victory to the next, no matter how seemingly impossible the assignment. Promoted to general at only 24, he seems impervious to pain and incapable of failure.
When the Civil War ends, MacKenzie's reputation shines even brighter when he is assigned to the Plains Indian Wars to take on the invincible Comanche led by their great war chief Quanah. But there is a price to be paid for 25 years of almost constant and always brutal warfare…
Based on the real-life story of Ranald MacKenzie, whose eventual illness – possibly PTSD almost a century before anyone knew what that was – and terrible end saw him virtually erased from the pages of history; a bare mention, when he is mentioned at all.
