Tensions between the two groups had been rising since the discovery of gold on Native American lands. When a number of tribes missed a federal deadline to move to reservations, the . Army, including Custer and his 7th Calvary, was dispatched to confront them.

Custer’s regiment, the 7th Cavalry, lost the battle at Little Big Horn for three reasons: the first is sheer numbers, the second is arrogance and the third is technology.

In 1999, Herman Viola published Little Bighorn Remembered, the culmination of two decades of collecting oral traditions of the battle from living descendants. More recently, the descendants of Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull have participated in documentaries that reveal ed information about their famous ancestors. The Lakota author Joseph M.

Books about the Battle of the Little Big Horn are almost without number (I should know; I am at present writing my own!) and unfortunately not all of them are particularly insightful or informative. I am sorry to say that in my opinion Combs's "Where Was Custer?" is among this latter group. I think he is too enraptured by those Indian narratives presented by David Humphreys Miller, for one thing (Indian narratives can have great value in deciphering what happened at the Little Big Horn, but Miller's are perhaps not among the most reliable). And Combs' conclusion as to what specifically happened to George Custer is neither original nor especially convincing. There are much better books available about these events/

A great detailed account of the epic battle from the men who fought in it. Rich with information with the flow of a story book - great balance and a great piece of literature.

The book arrived in very bad condition. The whole top half of the book was water logged.
The book itself was very interesting. I really like Harry Combs stories.
