Hi all,


Ron Field, author of the upcoming title 'Sioux Warrior vs Cavalryman' ( has very kindly agreed to do an interview. Are there any questions you would like to ask him? Please be aware that he might not be able to answer every question. 


Thank you,

Minal @ Osprey

Hello, thanks for the opportunity to ask questions!

My question is: why weren't repeating rifles more widely issued in the US army after their effectiveness had been demonstrated during the Civil War? Were there funding issues when the war ended?

Also, did US cavalry tactics consider rifle/carbine firing while on horseback viable, or were cavalrymen expected dismount and fire on foot when they needed to use their carbines?
