The Last Camel Charge: The Untold Story of America's Desert Militar


Formats & editions


This is the true story of that experiment and the extraordinary group of people who it brought together. The Last Camel Charge gives them their due as a vital piece of American history.





In the mid-nineteenth century, the U.S. Army would employ a weapon that had never before been seen on its native soil. From the Middle East came a cavalry mount that would fare better than both mules and horses in the American Southwest  . . .

Against the Mojave in the Arizona Territory, against the Mormons in Utah Territory, during the early stages of the Civil War, the camel would become part of military history and a nearly forgotten chapter of Americana.

This is the true story of that experiment and the extraordinary group of people who it brought together. The Last Camel Charge gives them their due as a vital piece of American history.

'[This] real-life historical tale includes the little-known and dramatic use of camels in battle action, the historic migration of the Mormons to Utah, the epic creation of the transcontinental railroad, and the fierce clashes of Native Americans defending their homes and way of life from settlers and soldiers from the East.' Bevin Alexander, author of Sun Tzu at Gettysburg
