to Lewis and Clark on their famous expedition, they were rewarded
by decades of invasive treaties and encroachment upon their
homeland. In June 1877, the Nez Perce struck back and were soon
swept into one of the most devastating Indian wars in American
history. The conflict culminated in an epic twelve-hundred-mile
chase as the U.S. Army pursued some eight hundred Nez Perce men,
women, and children, who tried to fight their way to freedom in

Destroyer escorts were built in greater numbers than any other kind of Allied fighting ship during World War II, and more than 100,000 British and American sailors served aboard them. This book combines photographs, ships' plans, eyewitness accounts and a researched text to tell the history of the largest class of destroyer escorts ever built - the Buckley. Deployed to protect Allied supply lines against German and Japanese attacks, by the war's end destoyer escorts had sunk more enemy submarines than any other kind of escort vessel. Designed in America, they served in both the Atlantic and the Pacific and provided the greatest number of warships to the Royal Navy through lend-lease. This book provides a photographic record of all 154 Buckley-class ships located by the author in Great Britain and the United States. Design and development, armament, major conversion programmes and the operational histories are all described in detail while eyewitness accounts add a personal touch to the history of these 'little wolves'.
