9780803257320: Custer: The Life of General George Armstrong Custer (Bison Book S)

"The Custer literature is voluminous and most of it is highly controversial. Through the tangle of charges and countercharges Jay Monaghan cuts a clear path in his fresh account of Custer's whole career. Where possible, Monaghan relies on original sources, and he appraises them with the sound judgment of the practiced historian he is. He is sympathetic with Custer but does not hesitate to show the man's foibles and failures. He presents no attorney's brief and yet he disproves a number of ill-founded accusations. . . ."

From the Back Cover:

This informative book covers the life of General George Armstrong Custer. From his life as a child to West Point, and beyond, to his death at the hand of Sitting Bull.

Review:

"Not that Monaghan has written an argumentative book. Far from it. He has written a narrative, and what a narrative! With imagination as well as judgment, he tells the story with well-chosen details taken from reliable sources. . . . All together, this is much the best of many Custer books. It brings the reader as close to the real man as any book is likely ever to do."—New York Herald-Tribune Books (New York Herald-Tribune Books)
