Summary
"Pulitzer Prize Winner Larry McMurtry turns his attention to George A. Custer, a complex man who has captivated historians for over a century. From graduating last in his class at West Point to leading the ill-fated 7th cavalry in the attack at the Littel Bighorn, Custer forged a legacy-- still very much alive today-- as one of the West's most enduring historical figures" -- from publisher's web site
Summary
A lavishly illustrated portrait of the 19th-century cavalry commander traces his rise from an unpromising West Point graduate to a distinguished military leader, providing coverage of such topics as his complicated marriage, mythologized defeat at Little Big Horn and enduring legacy
