This book aims to give the world the life of George Armstrong Custer, one of the few really great men that America has produced. Beginning at the foot of the social ladder, he rose to the top rapidly and phenomenally. Much of Custer's success has been attributed to good fortune, while it was really the result of a wonderful capacity for hard and energetic work, and a rapidity of intuition which is seldom found apart from military genius of the highest order. With no marked advantages of education or wealth to command his situation, Custer yet passed through a career so brilliant that his deeds are household words, his "Last Stand" against Sioux and Cheyenne warriors at Little Big Horn an enduring legend in American history. Few men had more enemies than Custer, and no man deserved them less. The world has never known half the real nobility of his life nor a tithe of the difficulties under which he struggled. Truth and sincerity, honor and bravery, unassuming piety and temperance were the mainspring of Major-Gen'l Custer, the man.
