    In June 1876, on a desolate hill above a winding river called "the Little Bighorn", George Armstrong Custer and all 210 men under his direct command were annihilated by almost 2,000 Sioux and Cheyenne. The news of this devastating loss caused a public uproar, and those in positions of power promptly began to point fingers in order to avoid responsibility.

    Story
    If you could sum up A Terrible Glory in three words, what would they be?

    James Donovan is an excellent researcher recounting many details that led up to the fateful day of the Alamo. It is an nteresting chronology from the perspectives of each of the primary characters. It should be suggested reading for high school and college American History classes.

    We listened to this book while driving across country from Idaho to Minnesota.

    After listening to this book we ordered Custer and the Little Big Horn.
