A Terrible Glory: Custer and the Little Bighorn---The Last Great Battle of the American West

A Terrible Glory: Custer and the Little Bighorn---The Last Great Battle of the American West Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. Custer, who was conveniently dead, took the brunt of the blame.

The truth, however, is far more complex. A Terrible Glory is the first book to relate the entire story of this endlessly fascinating battle and the first to call upon all the pertinent research and findings of the past twenty-five years—which have significantly changed how this controversial event is perceived. Furthermore, it is the first book to bring to light the details of the U.S. Army cover-up and unravel one of the greatest mysteries in U.S. military history.

Scrupulously researched, A Terrible Glory will stand as a landmark work. Brimming with authentic detail and an unforgettable cast of characters—from Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse to Ulysses Grant and Custer himself—this is history with the sweep of a great novel.
