Crazy Horse and Custer: The Epic Clash of Two Great Warriors at the Little Bighorn by Stephen E. Ambrose

Crazy Horse, leader of the Oglala Sioux, and General George Armstrong Custer of the Seventh Calvary, were cultural opposites, but they led uncannily parallel lives. Born at the same time, they both became leaders at very early ages, were stripped of power, and in disgrace worked to earn back the respect of their people.

Above all, Crazy Horse and Custer were men of supreme courage, natural-born leaders. On the morning of 25 June 1876, the paths of these two great men collided in an epic battle on the banks of the Little Bighorn. It was an inevitable clash between two men, two societies and two ways of life.

Set against the backdrop of the open prairie, Crazy Horse and Custer is the story of these heroes; an adventure full of bravery, military genius and pathos. Stephen E. Ambrose, the highly-acclaimed historian, skilfully brings to life this pivotal moment in the history of the Wild West.
