Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Battle of the Little Bighorn, then pay attention....

The Battle of the Little Bighorn, which is also commonly referred to by American historians as Custer’s Last Stand, is one of the most iconic events during the Great Sioux War that occurred between 1875 and 1876. The war itself became widespread among other tribes within the surrounding regions of the Black Hills territory of present-day South Dakota after conflicts started between the U.S government and the local Lakota and Cheyenne tribes in 1854, which lasted all the way to 1890.

In this book, we aim to separate facts from fiction in regards to one of the most iconic battles during the American Indian Wars and provide the reader with a clear and fact-based interpretation of the events that took place prior to and during the Battle of the Little Bighorn, as well as its ensuing impact on both the Americans and the Native Americans.

In The Battle of the Little Bighorn: A Captivating Guide to One of the Most Significant Actions of the Great Sioux War and How Custer's Last Stand Impacted the Northern Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes, you will discover topics such as:

  • The Great Sioux War

Source, and beautiful to look at

Be aware that the author fills his book with detail to the point of entertainment....but it is countered by the richness of his prose.

Perfect audible

New insights into Custer's movements and strategy are provided, and many of the important secondary characters in the story are given the depth they've been lacking for so long.

they are great !

This AUDIObook disputes that claim. It does seem that Custer's management was a lot braver than the rest off the soldiers. Surely tunning away and running was not a real step in the battle.

Accurate.

Lots of knowledge on Marcus reno and between. Couldn't put the book down. Gripping up to the time of Custer's conflict. The top never occurred! Very little information on Custer's battle, and the result. That being said, it's still an excellent book.
