The story of the Little Big Horn : Custer's last fight by W. A Graham( Book )

42 editions published between 1926 and 1994 in English and held by 1,444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his factual but dramatic account, Graham suggests that a series of circumstances ensured the defeat of the Seventh Cavalry. On that Sunday in June 1876, the Indians were simply better soldiers. Graham "has weighed and presented all the available evidence in a commendably judicious manner. ... [The] undeniable facts ... make a fairly simple story, and that story is essentially the record of an unnecessary sacrifice of brave men's lives."--New York Times. Graham's "report [is] very convincing, because marked by justice, conscientiousness, and industry."-New York Herald Tribune. First published in 1926 and respected ever since for its measured view of the most famous battle in the American West, The Story of the Little Big Horn asks questions that are still being debated. What were the causes of the debacle that wiped out Custer's command? Was it due to lack of a definite battle plan? To lack of correct information about the number, organization, and equipment of the Indians? To Custer's hot-headedness and thirst for glory? To Reno's alleged cowardice? To Benteen's delay in providing reinforcement? In his factual but dramatic account, W.A. Graham suggests that an awesome concatenation of attitudes and circumstances ensured the defeat of the Seventh Cavalry. On that Sunday in June 1876, the Indians were simply better (though not braver) soldiers
