Trooper Maverick
2 February 2016 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Bart is no fan of army life but is drawn to the fort because of the poker game. The Colonel threatens him with the stockade unless he joins the cavalry. This is the Dakota territory, and the Sioux are making trouble. The Colonel wants Bart to find out who is giving them guns. As expected, Bart does not make a good soldier. It is KP and guard duty, then Bart gets into a slugfest with his sergeant. The Colonel's wife was raised by Indians and has a Sioux lover. Bart appears bored and out of place as the cavalry and Indians engage in battle. Having turned 24 in basic training, I can attest to the rigors of army life. The hardest part is the loneliness.
