    Why would I want to pay $16.99 for an E-book? what a complete rip-off for a 200 page book.

    Do not waste your money ;on this book. The author should be ashamed to take your money. Poorly written and it adds nothing to your knowledge of the battle nor of Custer. I could have written this book

    Several glaring mistakes in this book. One photo was labeled Custer's horse, Comanche, and Custer. Comanche the only7th calvary survivor of the last stand was Captain Keogh's horse and the man in the photo was not Custer but an enlisted man who took care of Comanche aftert the battle. Another error implied Cuter wrote the note for Benteen to come quick and bring up the pack animals with the ammunition. This note was written by an aid and given to the Italian born messenger whose english was bad. I did not even finish it. The book did include several pictures I had not seen before but the writing and historical accuracy is lacking.

    As a fan of McMurtry I must say I was hugely disappointed. For some reason he meanders all over the place going back and forth to points in the story.  
    At one point he discusses the smile that was supposedly seen on Custer's face when his body was found, ends the discussion, then for
    some reason picks it back up pages later. There is also one photo that he has captioned "Custer with his horse Comanche." Anyone with a rudimentary 
    knowledge of the Custer story knows that Comanche was a survivor of the battle, but belonged to Captain Myles Keogh and not Custer. Such
    mistaken facts are inexcusable.

    A writer of fiction! Should stay there. There is nothing in this book (?) that resembles research of History. The Author describes Custer's first Historian (Whittaker) as a "Dime Store Novelist". With inflation, I guess that makes McMurtry a "Dollar Store Novelist". He states that Custer and Jesus are both over-rated. What does a statement like that have to do with History? If you ever read a comic book about Custer, I'm sure you got more Historical facts that you would find in McMurtry's book.. He states that his goal in wirhing this book was to disprove the Custer myth. Well, he proved something - his ability as a Historian is a myth.
