    "A story that needed to be told!"

    I learned more about General Custer than I learned by going to the battlefield. It was very worthwhile.

    Story
    "Good overview of Custer's life"

    I found McMurty's short history of Custer, like his Crazy Horse biography, meandering yet illuminating. The author subscribes to how slippery memory and history is; therefore anyone expecting an authoritative narrative, wrapped up in a neat package is likely to be disappointed. Rather, McMurtry dances around his subject, with an end result of a vivid and seemingly honest impression of Custer and his time.
