This national best-seller vividly reconstructs one of the most unbelievable and controversial battles in American military history—General Custer’s Last Stand in 1876. Why would a seasoned leader like Custer lead 200 U.S. Army soldiers into battle against 2,000 Native American warriors? The answer lies in this book, which captures in stunning detail the heroism, foolishness, and brutality that led to this legendary battle.

It has lots of interesting factoids and gives a terrific sense of place and time and attitudes of the day, but it sure jumps around a lot.
Son of the Morning Star is a great story about George Custer that is very well researched and detailed.
The author wanders through the characters and their life history and poorly ties it back to the plot of the story. This made it very difficult to follow. I lost interest quickly.
