9780865343146: The Curse of Destiny : The Betrayal of General George Armstrong Custer

George Armstrong Custer, strong-willed and strong of body, lived a life of defiance and brilliance until he met his fate at the battle of the Little Big Horn. How could this colorful historical figure have allowed the events that brought his untimely end? Was it only political intrigue? We know President Grant had an unbridled animosity toward Custer because he helped expose the Grant administration's callous indifference to the plight of the Plains Indians. Was Custer himself to blame? Or was it just the unpredictable hand of destiny? This gripping blend of fact and fiction from best-selling author Romain Wilhelmsen now opens the door to the private world, and the lives and loves of the famous general, his family, his friends, and his enemies, both red and white. He also delves deeply into the psyches of the Indian chiefs Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse and their followers, whose refusal to allow the white man to herd them onto reservations precipitated the famous battle which brought many warring Indian tribes together to fight as one. The famous battle, described in frightening detail, is the culmination of a unique and amazing journey where destiny itself is the star, leaving the reader with a lasting impression of the legendary George Armstrong Custer.

About the Author:

ROMAIN WILHELMSEN is a member of the Custer Battlefield Historical and Museum Association and the Little Big Horn Associates, as well as a past director of the Los Angeles Adventurer's Club. His chosen career as an adventure film producer and lecturer took him on extensive travels throughout South America, Africa, Mexico and the southwestern United States. He rafted down the Amazon River, was attacked and wounded by bandits while exploring in the mountains of Columbia, is credited with discovering a pre-Inca city in the Andes Mountains of Peru, and Spanish conquistador armor he exhibited at the Southwestern Museum in Los Angeles. Through his lectures and numerous television appearances here and abroad, he came to be known as 'The Legend Hunter,' which is the title of his memoir. He was born in Detroit, Michigan, and presently resides in San Antonio, Texas, with his wife, Jane Bower. Wilhelmsen is also the author of the best-selling book, Buckskin and Satin, also published by Sunstone Press.
