Synopsis: The Real Custer takes a good hard look at the life and storied military career of George Armstrong Custer—from cutting his teeth at Bull Run in the Civil War, to his famous and untimely death at Little Bighorn in the Indian Wars.
Author James Robbins demonstrates that Custer, having graduated last in his class at West Point, went on to prove himself again and again as an extremely skilled cavalry leader. Robbins argues that Custer's undoing was his bold and cocky attitude, which caused the Army's bloodiest defeat in the Indian Wars.
Robbins also dives into Custer’s personal life, exploring his letters and other personal documents to reveal who he was as a person, underneath the military leader. The Real Custer is an exciting and valuable contribution to the legend and history of Custer that will delight Custer fans as well as readers new to the legend.

From the Author: I had written about George Custer in Last in Their Class: Custer, Pickett and the Goats of West Point (Encounter, 2006). But I suspected there was more to learn about the Boy General, and in researching and writing The Real Custer I reached a deeper understanding of his life and character. The real man is far more compelling than the Custer of myth, whether portrayed as super-hero or super-villain.
