Bloodshed of Eagles is a fictionalized account of the Battle at Little Big Horn, while using historical aspects throughout the pages, the reader is taking on a journey to the very slaughter of General Custer's last stand. Falcon MacCallister is pressed upon by Zane Grey and Custer's wife, Libbie, to share the stories of his yesteryears and the time he spent in the company of General George Armstrong Custer. When Colorado joins the union, Falcon MacCallister is made Lt. Colonel of the Home Guard and before he can even settle into his position, a cache of Winchester repeater rifles and two Gatling guns go missing. Before they fall into enemy hands, namely, the Sioux, Falcon sets off on tracking down the missing weapons. Authors William and J.A. Johnstone capture life in the old west, the personality of Custer and the rigors of army life with clarity and perception. The reader is left shaking their heads over the outcome of Custer's last battle and wonder if he could have been reasoned with, would the outcome have had a different result. The fictional character of Falcon adds to the overall believable integrity of the story, by showing us a up close and personal side of the battle that is left out of the history books. Included at the end of the story is a list of all the men who perished with Custer on that fateful day, giving an extra human edge to the story. As well, where applicable, the actual letters exchanged between Custer and his wife, Libbie are shared with the reader, including the last letter that he never received, in which Libbie shares with him her trepidations about the upcoming battle. I liked the historical aspects of the story and had to remind myself they were one sided only because General Custers side of the story was being told. I liked how the authors made Custer as I have always imagined him to be, brash, arrogant, pig-headed and military minded, with just a touch of the human side appearing whenever he was in the presence of his wife. If you like historical western then you will enjoy Bloodshed of Eagles.

perhaps 2 chapters were interesting about the story, Mostly re living his past experience about custer, as the auther sees it, a lot of it could have been put in 2 chapters and then the story line of the book, If interested in the bio and history of Custer then this is a good read for you.

Ever wonder why Custer drove the 7th against the massed tribes? This entertaining book provides some insight and lots of action.

BLOODSHED OF EAGLES by William W. Johnstone with J.A. Johnstone is an wonderful western set in 1875 Colorado, Territory.It is told from the perseceptive of Falcon MacCallister.As he is telling the story to an author,Zane Grey in 1927.The story retells the tragic events of the Battle of Little Big Horn and General Custer's demise. The story is about how Falcom connected with General Custer while in pursuit of two gatling guns stolen from the Colorado Home Guard. While this story seems to be based on Western history,it still has an interesting take on the Western fiction side. It is the story of survivial, Indians,murderous ambush,and two men standing strong,standing together and fighting offthe Sioux with only a few guns against many Sioux Indians.It is told threw the eyes of one survivial Falcon MacCallister,as he relives the event from fifty years ago.This book was received for the purpose of review from BookBlogs and details can be found at Pinnacle Books,an imprint of Kensington Books and My Book Addiction and More.
