On the morning of June 25, 1876, Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer made the fateful decision to attack a large Native American village camped on the banks of the Little Big Horn River. It was a decision that would cost him his life, the lives of 268 of his men, and over 60 Native Americans defending their right to live free. Myths, mysteries, and legends of this fight have grown for more than 142 years, elevating a lonely patch of dirt and grass, dotted with white and brown tombstones, to mythological proportions. How did this apocalyptic clash of cultures happen? What is accurate, and what is conjecture? What happened?

After the critically acclaimed release of Chris Hoffert's short documentary Contested Ground for author Steve Adelson's book Little Bighorn, Voices from a distant wind, it became apparent to Chris and his fellow historians that there was much more of the story to tell. Award-winning director and Little Big Horn historian Chris Hoffert presents the most comprehensive visual study of the battle that has ever been seen. It will be unbiased, unabashed, and unforgettable.

Experience the entire battle as the survivors told it. Foreword by award-winning author and historian Frederic C. Wagner III and includes research articles by Christopher A. Hoffert.

BluRay Disc - Custer's Strategy of Defeat

Delivery FAST! and TRUE!... Excellent. The film is a very good images transposition of F.C. Wagner III book... characters look the part... storyline plausible enough... PROS: At last we see Keogh in film! and the last stand on RENO/BENTEEN Hill 25 and 26 of June. STORYLINE a PLUS! CONS: A bit wooden acting (they are NOT professional actors) but quite surprised by the level... could have been much worse!... with a limited budget the result is quite extraordinary IMHO... it lacks numbers in some scenes... but OK after all. A MUST ADD TO ANY CUSTER FILM COLLECTION.
