Summary
In this lavishly illustrated volume, Larry McMurtry, the greatest chronicler of the American West, tackles for the first time one of the paramount figures of Western and American history--George Armstrong Custer. McMurtry also argues that Custer's last stand at the Little Bighorn should be seen as a monumental event in our nation's history. Like all great battles, its true meaning can be found in its impact on our politics and policy, and the epic defeat clearly signaled the end of the Indian Wars--and brought to a close the great narrative of western expansion
Summary
A lavishly illustrated portrait of the 19th-century cavalry commander traces his rise from an unpromising West Point graduate to a distinguished military leader, providing coverage of such topics as his complicated marriage, mythologized defeat at Little Big Horn and enduring legacy
