Críticas

"For interested but uninitiated readers who wish to learn about the topic, this fast moving and well-written survey will be ideal"

(Booklist)

"Written in a flowing narrative, Lehman’s book makes for fascinating, if somber, reading."

(Mary Pickett Billings Gazette)

"Even if you’ve sworn off Custer books, give this one a try. It’s a quick and entertaining read, yet satisfyingly thorough."

(Jim Larson Billings Outpost)

"Accessible to lay readers and historians alike, with a far-reaching eye to the conflict's legacy... Highly recommended."

(Midwest Book Review)

"This beautifully written monograph offers new perspectives on the various causes, consequences, and legacies of the battle... Lehman reminds readers that the stories told about the bloodshed at the Little Bighorn in June 1876 reveal a good deal about who Americans were and what they might become."

(Choice)

"Lehman's is a well-researched, eloquently presented, attractive narrative that embraces historical matters of great depth and breadth. This is not a book about tactics; it is, rather, a volume that deals with the larger forces of history. Yet Lehman retains a sensitivity to the telling details throughout."

(Ron McCoy Center for Great Plains Studies)

Reseña del editor

Commonly known as Custer's Last Stand, the Battle of Little Bighorn may be the best recognized violent conflict between the indigenous peoples of North America and the government of the United States. Incorporating the voices of Native Americans, soldiers, scouts, and women, Tim Lehman's concise, compelling narrative will forever change the way we think about this familiar event in American history.

On June 25, 1876, General George Armstrong Custer led the United States Army's Seventh Cavalry in an attack on a massive encampment of Sioux and Cheyenne Indians on the bank of the Little Bighorn River. What was supposed to be a large-scale military operation to force U.S. sovereignty over the tribes instead turned into a quick, brutal rout of the attackers when Custer's troops fell upon the Indians ahead of the main infantry force. By the end of the fight, the Sioux and Cheyenne had killed Custer and 210 of his men. The victory fueled hopes of freedom and encouraged further resistance among the Native Americans. For the U.S. military, the lost battle prompted a series of vicious retaliatory strikes that ultimately forced the Sioux and Cheyenne into submission and the long nightmare of reservation life.

This briskly paced, vivid account puts the battle's details and characters into a rich historical context. Grounded in the most recent research, attentive to Native American perspectives, and featuring a colorful cast of characters, Bloodshed at Little Bighorn elucidates the key lessons of the conflict and draws out the less visible ones. This may not be the last book you read on Little Bighorn, but it should be the first.
