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.

Review: The Court-Martial of George Armstrong Custer

User Review  - Chris - Goodreads

Although I don't generally like "alternative history" fiction, Jones provides an exception here. Overall, the book is a well written description of the famous battle, one I prefer to the better known "Son of the Morning Star" by Evan Connell. Read full review
