Kirby York John Wayne is expected to replace the outgoing commander at Fort Apache an isolated U S cavalry post York had commanded his own regiment during the Civil War and was wellqualified to assume permanent command To the surprise and disappointment of the company command of the regiment was given to Lieutenant Colonel Owen Thursday Henry Fonda Thursday a West Point graduate was a general during the Civil War Despite his Civil War combat record Lieutenant Colonel Thursday lacks experience with the Indians he is expected to oversee and is an incompetent arrogant and egocentric officer Accompanying widower Thursday is his daughter Philadelphia Shirley Temple She becomes attracted to Second Lieutenant Michael Shannon ORourke John Agar the son of Sergeant Major Michael ORourke Ward Bond The elder ORourke was a recipient of the Medal of Honor as a major with the Irish Brigade during the Civil War entitling his son to enter West Point and become an officer However the classconscious Thursday forbids his daughter to see someone he does not consider a gentleman When there is unrest among the Indians led by Cochise Miguel Inclan Thursday ignores Yorks advice to treat the natives with honor and to remedy problems on the reservation caused by corrupt Indian agent Silas Meacham Grant Withers Thursdays inability to deal with Meacham effectively due to his rigid interpretation of Army regulations stating that Meacham is an agent of the United States government and therefore entitled to Army protection despite his own personal contempt for the man coupled with Thursdays prejudicial and arrogant ignorance regarding the Apache drives the Indians to rebel Eager for glory and recognition Thursday orders his regiment into battle on Cochises terms a direct charge into the hills despite Yorks urgent warnings that such a move would be suicidal Thursday relieves York and orders him to stay back replacing him with Captain Sam Collingwood George OBrien Following Thursdays orders York spares the younger ORourke from battle Thursdays entire command is nearly wiped out but a few soldiers manage to escape back to the ridge where Captain York is positioned Thursday himself survives but then returns to die with the last of his trapped men Cochise spares York and the rest of the detachment because he knows York to be an honorable man Subsequently now LieutenantColonel Kirby York commands the regiment Meeting with correspondents he introduces Lt ORourke now married to Philadelphia Thursday A reporter asks Colonel York if he has seen the famous painting depicting Thursdays Charge York about to command a new and arduous campaign to bring in the Apaches while believing that Thursday was a poor tactician who led a foolhardy and suicidal charge

for those who care to look is a new and maturing viewpoint upon one aspect of the American Indian wars For here it is not the heathen Indian who is the heavy of the piece but a hardbitten Army colonel blind through ignorance and a passion for revenge And ranged alongside this willful white man is a venal government agent who exploits the innocence of the Indians while supposedly acting as their
