Summary

Summary

Geronimo was a great man with enormous courage. Against overwhelming odds, he struggled for as long as he could to save the lives and liberty of the Apache people. When he surrendered and lost his freedom, people began to understand Geronimo for who he really was, and opinions about him began to change. By the time of World War II, he had come to symbolize the struggle for freedom and the defense of one's nation. As American paratroopers leaped from planes into enemy territory, they shouted "Geronimo!" as a symbol of their courage and determination to carry out the mission. -- Alvin M. Josephy, Jr.
