Custer's Best: The Story of Company M, 7th Cavalry at the Little Bighorn
This is the story of George Custer's best cavalry company at the 1876 Battle of the Little Bighorn - Company M. With a tragically flawed, but extremely brave Company Commander and a no-nonsense First Sergeant, Company M maintained a disciplined withdrawal from the skirmish line fighting, saving Major Marcus Reno's entire detachment and possibly the rest of the regiment from annihilation. Presented here is the most-detailed work on a single company at the Little Bighorn ever written -- the product of multi-year research at archives across the country and detailed visits to the battlefield by a combat veteran who understands fields of fire, weapons' effects, training, morale, decision-making, unit cohesion and the value of outstanding non-commissioned officers.1 vol, 272 pgs 2011 ATGLEN, SCHIFFER BOOKS
