Mr. Michno does a nice job of relating how the Indians viewed events as they unfolded that day. The book is based on many conversations and statements from the only survivors of the battle. As I read the book, with it's unique way of telling about the battle, I could picture how the troopers were at a big disadvantage as they became targets, while their adversaries did not.
As you read the book you will see that there were a number of opportunities before the last fight, for the 7th to rejoin with Reno and the rest of their comrades. But Custer was on the offensive, giving no thought to defense or retreat. This was not recklessness on his part, he had reasons to expect a victory that day, even an hour or more after the battle had been joined.
The reasons for the failure of Custer's plan to achieve victory becomes clear as you read the book to it's conclusion.
