George Armstrong Custer was one of the most flamboyant and controversial officers ever to have served in the United States Army.

This superbly illustrated book provides a unique visual record of this famous commander from his graduation at West Point to the last great battle of the American West: the Battle of the Little Big Horn. Rare photographs from private collections show his stylish uniforms, weapons and artefacts, and reveal the faces of the men who rode into legend with him. Includes images of the units he commanded and of the soldiers who fought – and some of whom died – at the Little Big Horn.

This very popular series provides a visual record of American soldiers from Independence through the wars that followed. The text is largely confined to captions and extended captions but adequately supports the fine collection of images. This edition looks at the career of the controversial General Custer, using images from private collections. Much Recommended.

George Armstrong Custer was one of the most flamboyant and controversial officers ever to have served in the United States Army. This superbly illustrated book provides a unique visual record of this famous commander from his graduation at West Point in 1861 to the last great battle of the American West: the Battle of the Little Big Horn in 1876.

Rare photographs from private collections show his stylish uniforms, weapons and artefacts, and reveals the faces of the men who rode into legend with him. Includes images of the units he commanded and of the soldiers who fought - and some whom died - at the Little Big Horn.
