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.

Review of Custer's Strategy of Defeat

David Anderson on 7th Sep 2023

I am not an expert, but I have read about 20 books on battle of the Little Big Horn in the last two years, including the archeological books and reviews, books focusing on certain aspects of the battle and others with some pretty far out theories. In my opinion, the sequence of events presented in this movie is likely the most accurate of anything I have seen or read so far. I also bought the book and would recommend that as well for the additional information included. The movie itself is professionally done to the highest standards, the acting is superb, and it is highly entertaining. I cannot find fault with anything. Very highly recommended.
