The sentence begins with a phrase that acts as a modifier.
A modifying phrase should be located next to the thing it modifies, so the noun that follows the comma should refer to the object of the generals' renown.
The phrase "few people now" does not refer to the object of renown (the Apache), so eliminate choices A and B.

Choices C and D omit the idea that "few people are now aware", so eliminate choices C and D.

The correct answer is choice E.
