About this title


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.
