Synopsis: Frederick William Benteen (1834–98) was a military officer during the Civil War and the Black Hills War against the Lakotas and the Northern Cheyennes. He was in command of a battalion at the Battle of Little Bighorn, and some say that his controversial actions during the battle may have contributed to Custer’s disastrous defeat.
In Harvest of Barren Regrets, Charles K. Mills explores Benteen’s complex personality and life as a career army man during one of the most violent and compelling periods in U.S. military history. He views Benteen as misjudged by history, a man forced to shoulder much of the blame for events far beyond his influence or control. As Mills says at the end of this wonderful biography, “There are no monuments to Frederick William Benteen today. He remains as he lived: a rather obscure supporting actor who appeared briefly on center stage in a well-known American history drama and then quietly faded away. It was his misfortune to live largely unknown and to die largely misunderstood.”

About the Author: Charles K. Mills is a historian and the author of the novel A Mighty Afternoon. He lives in Tucson, Arizona. James Donovan is the author of A Terrible Glory: Custer and the Little Bighorn—the Last Great Battle of the American West and Custer and the Little Bighorn, both main selections of the Military Book Club.

Book Description Arthur H. Clark Company, Glendale, CA, 1985. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No DJ. First edition. Benteen was a complex man of strong opinion, one who harbored intense animosity for so many with whom he served, especially George Custer. The first full-length biography of a man who has been called hero, undeniably brave in the face of battle, and yet one who silently found the failings of his fellow man all-consuming. Copy has one line that previous owner underlined. 8722. Bookseller Inventory # 8722
