Descripción

New York 1967, hastings House, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 7 1/2 x 10, VG/VG CONDITION, ( small light stain on top edge of back borard ), 184 pages, massively illustrated with drawings.Here is a thrilling and masterful complete "eyewitness" account of the famous Battle of the Little Big Horn that features 101 drawings — 17 of them in two-color and one in full-color — of the soldiers and the hostile Indians in swirling action. In graphic realism they present the background of this most written-about battle of American history — introducing Custer, his officers and men, and many of the great chiefs and warriors, from Sitting Bull on down, who dealt the Seventh Cavalry such a crushing defeat on that fateful June 25, 1876. Then there are dozens of drawings of the bloody conflict itself, with its pounding, tumultuous action, the desperate attacks by the pony soldiers against the greatly superior defending force and their subsequent withdrawals and last-ditch stands; the unrelenting counterattacks by the fierce determined Sioux and Cheyenne warriors, inspired by medicine chief Sitting Bull and led by Crazy Horse, Gall, Crow King and others; the near-panic retreat of the troops under Major Reno; and finally the clamorous, dust-and-smoke-shrouded climax on Custer Ridge, with the last handful of "Longhair's" contingent going down before the whooping, triumphant, wild-charging redmen. To top it all off, artist-illustrator Bill Reusswig, a long-time student of the Custer Fight, has supplemented his "picture report" with a cogent narrative text.A Picture Report of the Custer Fight is an amazing re-creation of a battle that stunned a nation — a unique presentation of history-asit-must-have-been.
