The Court-Martial of George Armstrong Custer
George Armstrong Custer, the golden-boy of the 7th Cavalry, is miraculously found alive among the hundreds of dead soldiers. Then, as a stunned nation looks on, he is put on trial for disobeying orders. While the prosecutor shows Custer as a murderous grandstander, reckless with the lives of his men, the public wants desperately to believe that their hero made a simple mistake. Finally, it's Custer's turn to reveal what really happened that sweltering day along the Little Bighorn.

George Custer was an ambitious soldier, who had risen as high as Brigadier General, but had been cut back to peace-time Colonel after the Civil war. He tried to attack the largest concentration of Northern Plains Indians ever achieved, at Little Big horn Creek. Using a plan he had tried before, he plowed into them, and was wiped out along with all of his immediate command. What if he had survived the battle, after losing it the way he actually did? A Court Martial would have been held. It is a fun read, revealing that Douglas Jones had researched the man's previous career, and gathered an interesting set of generals to preside. Read it twice.
