Críticas

"The strength of the book lies . . . in its description of the nature of Civil War cavalry fighting, [which was] swift, fluid, and difficult to understand, both for those who were in it and for those who would write about it."-Jeffrey Kimball, The Old Northwest -- Jeffrey Kimball * The Old Northwest * "The best examination of Custer's Civil War career."-Robert M. Utley, author of Cavalier in Buckskin: George Armstrong Custer and the Western Military Frontier -- Robert M. Utley

Reseña del editor

"Custer found himself in the one dilemma all soldiers most dread-he was outnumbered and completely surrounded. With disaster looming in every quarter and no chance of escape. . . ." So Gregory J. W Urwin pulls the reader into a scene describing not the Battle of the Little Big Horn but a Civil War engagement that George Armstrong Custer and his troop survived, thanks to strategy as much as naked courage. Many books have focused on Custer's Last Stand in 1876, making legend of total defeat. Custer Victorious is the first to examine at length, with attention to primary sources, his brilliant Civil War career. Urwin writes: "None of Custer's exploits against the Plains Indians could compare with those he performed while with the Army of the Potomac." The leader of a brigade called "the Wolverines," Custer was promoted to major general and the helm of the Third Cavalry Division when he was only twenty-four. Urwin describes the Boy General's vital contributions to Union victories from Gettysburg to Appomattox. Gregory J. W Urwin, an associate professor of history at the University of Central Arkansas, has written a new preface for this Bison Book edition.
