The introduction begins by describing the Battle of Bayang in Lanao, Philippines, in May 1902. It then introduces John J. Pershing, his formative experience commanding Sioux scouts and Tenth Cavalry African American soldiers, and his Progressive Era context. It discusses his time in Zamboanga, Mindanao, and his intimate relationship with the Filipina Joaquina Bondoy Ignacio. It describes the Maranao Moro social-political world in which he immersed himself. And it examines how the bloodbath at Bayang impelled him to begin shaping a more effective and less-lethal way of fighting small wars.
