Another side of Custer
George Custer grew up in an expanding young country and his early influences mirrored the times. Two aspects of this era dominate most works about him: the Civil War and the war with the Indians. When mentioned, if at all, his early life and years as a cadet at West Point are brief. This is the first Custer biography to focus on these lesser-known parts of his life in great detail.
Enlightening and comprehensive, this book is informed by all of Custer’s known writings: letters; magazine articles; his book, My Life on the Plains; and his unfinished memoirs of the Civil War; along with books by his wife, Elizabeth Custer; and reflections of others who knew him well. Custer draws together these elements in a succinct and accessible read.
