5,0 su 5 stelleThis Book Brings us Closer to the Truth of What Happenend at the Battle of the Little Bighorn
DaJ. Groenil 26 settembre 2015 - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Although we will never really know exactly what happened on that fateful afternoon of June 25, 1876, with the recent sources, we are getting very close in my opinion. This book and Frederic Wagner's book (The Strategy of Defeat at the Little Big Horn) go a long way towards providing an answer.
What is becoming clear from the archeological analysis and a clear and logical analysis of the Little Big Horn battlefield is that something happened to break up the coherence of Custer's command resulting in the deaths of 200 men. Although the author (not Gordon Harper but another individual) is not willing to be courageous and provide a final statement of that, Gordon Harper provides a strong hint.
There are many individuals who have studied this battle (including David Humphreys and my brother) who believe that Custer was mortally wounded at the Medicine Coulee. My answer to that is: then why did his command go to the north ford. We know that he did because Mark Kellogg's body was found there and some Indian sources claim that there was a firefight there. So, I'm not a believer in that scenario and neither is this source and Fredericks. In fact, this source goes so far as to state that there may not have even have been a firefight there.
However, there is more and more evidence pointing that Custer was in fact mortally wounded at the north fork. If not, why didn't the soldiers continue to charge across this ford against relatively minor resistence. And, after the command retreated to the site of the "last stand hill" why did it wait for 20 minutes. This source mentions that maybe someone important was wounded at the north fork and the doctor's were checking him out. Further, I would strongly suggest that that someone was George Custer, and at that time, E company charged to the Deep Ravine to get away and all coherence of command disappeared.
As I stated earlier, we will never know what happened, but I think that we do know that the picture of George Custer fighting with two guns at the end is a farce. In fact, he was mortally wounded and someone (probably his brother, but maybe one of the other three officers around him at the end) probably ended his life with a bullet to the head (so that he wouldn't be captured).
That doesn't mean that there wasn't heroism at the end. There is reason to believe that in fact Tom Custer died with two guns (probably George Custer's) blazing before being killed at the end and that Myles Keough (who many of the Indians believed was Custer) may have done the same. Again, we will never know for sure.
Also, even if Custer was incapacitated and the coherence of command was broken up, the Indians still probably would have won the battle. So, maybe this point is mute... we'll never know for sure. This is one of the reasons why this battle of the Little Bighorn has always captured my and others imaginations. This and the fact that this is the only battlefield where the crosses are placed to mark were the soldiers fell.

In 20 years of being an Indian wars, Cavalry, and Custer history buff, this is by far the best researched, and documented book I have read on the subject. I have the opportunity to ride the ground were the battle was fought every year as I have done the Reenactment of the battle every year at the Little Bighorn since 2001. This book and Weiberts "Sixty Six years in Custer's Shadow" are probably two of the best books written on the subject.

this is one of the best books, maybe the best book that I have read pertaining to the battle, and I have read over 30 of them in 20 years. I would recommend it to anyone who is a student of the battle or anyone who is most interested. Very informative book and should settle-answer any questions that anyone might have on the Battle of the little Horn or Greasy Grass. Glad I purchased it. Super good reading.

I have read other works but none had the extensive detail and research contained in this work. Most sources are actual participants or contemporary and the analysis is breathtaking. I visited the battle field last year and this book answers many questions I had then. I wish I had read this book before the trip. I highly recommend this book to any one with an interest in the battle.

What a great book! I have several books on Custer, but the depth of detail provided by the author is not only credible with substantiated supporting references. I have read nothing that compares to this book, reference the topic. This will be a favorite book of mine for years to come. The book arrived before expected, and was packaged sufficiently to remain in excellent condition. Thank you!
