An historically-accurate account of the egotistical boy general. Custer, who graduated last in his class at West Point, made his reputation during the Civil War as an undeniably brave leader, and who apparently knew only one strategy, i.e., attack. The play examines his uneasy relationships with some of the officers under his command and their survivors' guilt after the massacre on the Little Bighorn. Could they have saved him? If not for their dislike of Custer, would they have tried no matter what the odds? This is a very well-written play that brings to light some of the bad decisions that Custer made which led to his ultimate demise. Interesting.
