"Not many enlisted men recorded their adventures in Indian
warfare. Still fewer actually kept a journal to lend immediacy to
their observations. Frontier Soldier is such a journal, by a literate
private who left his story of plains warfare in a chronicle rich in
detail. It is the richer for the annotations of Jerome A. Greene,
whose understanding of the campaigns in which Zimmer
marched is surpassed by few historians."
-Robert M. Utley, author of Cavalier in Buckskin: George Armstrong Custer and the Western Military Frontier
