George Armstrong Custer
A Complete Life of General George A. Custer: From Appomattox to the Little Big Horn A Complete Life of General George A. Custer: From Appomattox to the Little Big Horn by Frederick Whittaker
This is a detailed biography of George Armstrong Custer from his growing-up years in Ohio to his years at West Point, the Civil War and his transition to a post-war politic.
