Published by Regnery Publishing. 1st. 2014
Fine condition in a fine dustwrapper. A study of the life of this fascinating man, drawing on correspondence, histories, and other personal documents to reveal different facets of the real Custer: the son of a strict but loving father; the mischievous West Point cadet who preferred earning demerits to studying; the loyal friend who amiable crossed enemy lines to visit his Southern friends during the Civil War; the loving husband who took years to finally win the approval of his wife's stern father; and the famous 'Boy General' who led a military career full of glorious victories - until his final, fateful charge. Black boards, gilt title to spine.
