Nathaniel Philbrick "The Last Stand: Custer, Sitting Bull, and the Battle of the Little Bighorn"
Penguin Books | English | April 26, 2011 | ISBN: 0143119605 | 496 pages | azw, epub, lrf, mobi | 6,4 mb

Much has been said about the Battle of Little Bighorn. George Armstrong Custer has been portrayed as both an arrogant imbecile and a national hero. Sitting Bull has been portrayed as a murderous villain and a cultural icon of steadfastness. Nathaniel Philbrick, as he did in his wondrous MAYFLOWER, digs deep into the heart of the legend. Custer and Sitting Bull were both men human beings with faults and virtues, men who both appeared to desire peace, on the eve of the Battle and yet, neither many any great overtures for it.
