I found this book to be well researched, well written and very informative. As someone who enjoys reading history this book was very eye opening and provided great insight.
Ambrose does a masterful job of relating the details and facts while attempting to view the situations from all angles. Of course, the reader may find themselves a little bogged down in the facts if you don't desire that much detail. However you will not be without enough information to understand what it taking place.
I very much enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone looking to learn more of the history of the American expansion west, especially in regards to the figures of Crazy Horse and Custer, definitely two very different, yet eerily similar figures who are forged in American consciousness.
I am sure I would be able to go on and on about oversights and what should have been added/left out but those would be my opinions only. I believe one should read and judge for themselves rather then be biased by what another person feels/believes. If you have a longing to understand either of these two men or what happened in their lives that influenced that fateful day then this is the book you need to read. If your just interested in understand more about the our Countries days when Manifest Destiny was shaping our lands, then again check this one out.
