The myth of Custer's last stand at the Battle of the Little Big Horn is shattered by Richard Allan Fox, Jr., who demonstrates that the troopers' end came amid terror and disarray, with no determined fighting and little firearm resistance. Using archaeological analyses of bullets, spent cartidges, and other material data, combined with Indian eyewitness accounts and additional primary sources, Fox replays this battle in detail, identifying combat positions and tracking soldiers and Indians across the battlefield.

I wouldn't call this the definitive work on the battle of the Little Bighorn. A novice to the battle might be a little overwhelmed, but it is agreed among most students that Fox made a few mistakes. Biggest one: he had Captain Yates leading a battalion far north to the so-called "Ford D," to round up the Indian women and children. This is based on very slim evidence. While most think that Yates or some other officer did lead some men a little north of Custer Hill, perhaps or perhaps not to snap up the women and children, it is believed that he did not go very far and that there were probably no fatalities. Fox claims the body of Mark Kellogg was found near Ford D, but this is surely incorrect. All the firsthand accounts I have read clearly point to the vicinity of Deep Ravine as the spot where Kellogg's corpse was discovered.
Furthermore, Fox relies rather heavily on the Indian accounts collected by Dr. Marquis. This is unfortunate because it has been demonstrated that Marquis padded his account of Wooden Leg with the experiences of other men (crediting them to Wooden Leg), and also doctored the Indian accounts to fit his own preconceived notions of the battle, i.e. fictionalizing them. The Marquis interviews should only be used with extreme caution.
He also believes that most of the Indian casualties were suffered on the southern end of the battle, and that the soldiers on Custer Hill and the South Skirmish Line barely fought at all. I think Gregory Michno has disproven this theory --- most Indian casualties occurred in the northern area of the battlefield. This matter, though, is a subject of much contention that has yet to be resolved.

As a cultural anthropologist with emphasis on plains indian tribes and history and a frequent visitor to the Little Big Horn Battlefield Monument, I have read Mr. Fox's book a number of times and have gone over the ground with it in hand. I have also read many of the other accounts, both contemporary and historical to attempt an understanding of what occurred at the Little Big Horn. Fox's precise, analytical and well-reasoned account, taking into consideration the physical evidence at the site, seems irrefutable. Contrary to one reviewer, I found no evidence of "rambling" at all, but a thorough analysis of all aspects of the battle from archeological evidence, oral and written histories to US Army Calvary tacitcs in use at the time, that support Fox's thesis, which is different and original from all that have preceeded it. Congratulations to Mr. Fox for a model of historical, archeological and anthropological research. I believe he has indeed broken new ground in the field. If you have any interest at all in the plains tribes, Custer or western history you owe it to yourself to read this fine book.

I found this account of the Little Bighorn event very informative and full of new information and conclusions which are all plausible. At times it became difficult to follow and even "ramble". Once the reader gets past these areas, a clear view of the events (called episodes in the text) comes into view. I wish that the author had an opportunity to excavate the Cemetary Ridge area of the monument, since definite proof of one of the most interesting aspects of the work may be hidden there, but since this isn't possible, this part of the story may never be fully realized.

4.0 von 5 Sternen My review of Custer's Last Stand 14. Oktober 2015
Von Uncle Don - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I read all the pervious reviews and find them interesting. I agree with the comment you are either for or against Custer and what took place at the Little Big Horn. What I have not seen is what I consider an important fact that Dr. Fox just mentioned ... TRAINING. There were no doubt a good many troopers on the campaign had very little marksmanship training. This is a assumption on my part, but consider the size of each of the companies, about 80 men or so. While the 7th was in garrison at Ft. Lincoln normal company duties would take up much of the time troops needed for training, particularly marksmanship. Dr. Fox mentioned that officers at the Reno-Benteen site went around telling troopers how to use their weapons. This to me is an important fact and would tend to explain why weapons were later found the Indians had discarded. Dr. Fox also makes the point the Custer arrived at Ft. Lincoln just shortly before the operation got underway. I am a old soldier and one thing I was taught that the Commander is responsible for everything his troops do or don't do and this includes training and leadership. With his companies spread out at various locations and having few officers plus small companies what I said about company duties and the overall commander that was absent for sometime it is no wonder training was lax. As far as the troops panic, if the officers and NCOs were killed early in each fight there would be little or no leadership present and men would tend to seek anyone that could tell them what to do and thus stay alive. We will never know how soon Custer was hit, but the fact remains there were numerous officers in his command group that could have taken command. This brings up the point how well was his command group trained, i.e. chain of command. How effective this would have been in the overall battle is open to question.

I agree that the absence of spent ammunition on the battle field means very little considering the time frame from the battle until Dr. Fox did his work, to many other people had access to the same ground.

My last point is intelligence. Custer's scouts are reported to have told him there was a very large concentration of Indians in the valley and some are said to have told him not to attack. In the mean time he had split his force into 3 battalions, none of which could support the other, then according to Dr. Fox split his battalion into two smaller units, again none of which could support the other. Apparently once he saw what he was up against to accomplish his mission of sending the Indians back to the reservation he sent the order to Benteen to join him. Had he paid any attention to what his scouts told him he should have sent the order to Benteen earlier. In my opinion Benteen did the right thing is stopping to support Reno, in fact it based on the "Reno Court of Inquiry" he for practical purposes assumed command.

Overall I think this is a good book about a subject approached from a new light and it does something many other Custer books do not do and that is use what the Indians had to say, no matter if you buy what they say or not. They were there, we were not.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great work 6. Oktober 2009
Von shotout 68 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I had no real interest in Custer and the Battle until recently traveling to the Battle site. After that I was hooked ! I had to understand what really happened there! I ordered three books on the subject and found this one to be the most logical, well researched and complete description of the event.I have no backgroung in archeology but as a soldier with combat experience. I understand what the author describes as stability/desinigration in combat and how it effects the outcome! This is not an easy read! As others have said the maps and diagrams could be better. However I tend to believe the author stayed with the facts and has given us the most factual account of what really took place at the Little Big Horn.

5.0 von 5 Sternen For the Custer Student 25. August 2013
Von Martin M - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book tends toward being dry and is not what you want to read if you are looking for Indian War adventure. That said, Fox makes a very compelling argument for the way things played out at the subject battle using the available archaeological data. This and Michno's work stand out for those wanting objective, factually-based perspectives on this piece of US history, as opposed to the revisionist drivel often encountered.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Too much background on basic archeology 7. Februar 2014

It was pretty hard to struggle through all the "Archeology is wonderful" stuff to get to the actual findings at the site
