    On a hot summer day in 1876, George Armstrong Custer led the Seventh Cavalry to the most famous defeat in U.S. military history. Outnumbered and exhausted, the Seventh Cavalry lost more than half of its 400 men, and every soldier under Custer's direct command was killed. It's easy to understand why this tremendous defeat shocked the American public at the time. But with Custerology, Michael A. Elliott tackles the far more complicated question of why the battle still haunts the American imagination today.

    If you want to hear how fanstatic this author is, just listen to this book, he will tell you.

    Off track and many tangents, parts of this book are even about Custer!

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    If you want to hear scratchy sound then this is the book for you!


    What could Clarence B. Carson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Have someone else read it


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Have a male voice?


    Did A Basic History of the United States, Vol. 2 inspire you to do anything?

    Stop listening to it!

    Challenging what most of us assume to be verifiable truths in areas like history, literature, science, nature, and more, The Book of General Ignorance is a witty gotcha compendium of how little we actually know about anything. It'll have you scratching your head wondering why we even bother to go to school.

    Revealing the truth behind all the things we think we know but don't, this book leaves you dumbfounded about all the misinformation you've managed to collect during your life.

    "If you like UK History this one's for you"
    Overall

    This book is too geared for the UK, it is not of general nature. There is more than just one tiny island in the world.
