The story of the Little Big Horn Custer's last fight by W. A Graham ( Book )
14 editions published between 1945 and 1973 in English and held by 777 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Since 1926, when this narrative of the Seventh Cavalry's defeat at the hands of the followers of Sitting Bull was first offered to the public, much has been written on the subject, by numerous authors of varying ability. The story of Custer's last fight -- the story of the Little Big Horn -- and the mystery that still enshrouds Custer's fate, continue to fascinate the student of our Indian wars. It is a subject that strangely evokes the interest of each succeeding generation, despite the fact that two-thirds of a century has now elapsed since the Yellow Hair and his cohorts passed into history. Little that is new, and nothing of any moment has been discovered since 1926; and as the years pass, it becomes increasingly unlikely that anything of importance will be discovered. For that reason, and because nearly all those who participated in the fight, officers, soldiers and Indians alike, have now crossed the great divide, the author has found necessary only minor changes in the text, changes that affect the narrative and the substance not at all. Both remain precisely as originally written. The book has received both praise and criticism, as was to be expected. On the whole, however, it has stood the test of the years, and is again offered as the author's earnest and unbiased effort to present an accurate word-picture of the greatest of all combats between the American soldier and the American Indian"--Preface
