From the author of the bestselling D-Day, June 6, 1944 and Undaunted Courage, Stephen E. Ambrose's Crazy Horse and Custer is "an impressively researched and admirably narrated dual biography" (Publishers Weekly) of the two leaders whose strikingly parallel lives culminated with their legendary clash at Little Bighorn. Crazy Horse, leader of the Oglala Sioux, and General George Armstrong Custer both were men of aggression and supreme courage, became leaders in their societies at very early ages, were stripped of power and, in disgrace, worked to earn back the respect of their people. And to both of them, the unspoiled grandeur of the Great Plains was an irresistible challenge. Ambrose shows how the parallel lives of these two men would pave the way for an inevitable clash between two nations.
