Publisher's Summary

“The Army is the Indian's best friend.”
“I would be willing, yes glad, to see a battle every day during my life.” (General George Armstrong Custer)

George Armstrong Custer, a flamboyant American military leader, first came to the world’s attention as a cavalry commander for the Union army during the American Civil War and in the opening of the Western territories. The influx of whites into American Indian lands angered the Sioux nation, thus a war resulted between them and the United States. In 1876, Custer was instructed to help drive the Sioux and Cheyenne onto their reservations. 

On June 25, 1876, however, as the Seventh Cavalry approached the Little Big Horn River, the soldiers encountered an Indian village and Custer took to the offensive. The Sioux warriors, however, greatly outnumbered Custer and his men, and Custer and his forces were wiped out. This is the real story of one of America’s most legendary, and ultimately, unfortunate military hero’s. 

Geoffrey Giuliano is the author of 32 internationally best-selling books published by the biggest publishers in the world from 1984 to today. He is also an acclaimed Hollywood film actor, director, designer, and is the voice on over 500 popular audiobooks.

Custer's viewpoint

George Armstrong Custer (1839-1876) was a flamboyant solider during the Civil War and during the Indian Wars of the Western Territories. I know that Custer wrote a memoir called “My Life on the Plains”, but I have never heard of this book.

This is yet another story of the June 25, 1876 battle at the Little Big Horn River in Montana. It makes an interesting review of Custer. I could not get into this book either it was my mood or the book.

The book is seventeen hours and forty minutes. Geoffrey Giuliano does a good job narrating the book. Giuliano is an author and audiobook narrator. This is my first experience listening to him.

Cisterns voice is a little week

The audio quality recorded
in 1875 isn’t bad. When you hear the surround sound battle ? You’ll feel like you’re there !!!
