What did you like best about Glorious War? What did you like least?
The Civil War record of GAC deserves the telling, and this book is an aid, although riven with prose whose purpleness out-flashes John Pelham's flying artillery at dusk. Plenty of tactical and operational information which does much to elucidate Custer's "Rock Star" status which arose during the conflict and which haunted and drove him for the rest of his life.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of James C. Lewis?
Almost anyone. Mister Lewis clearly knows next to nothing about the subject matter, and throughout, his serial mispronunciations are one of the less endearing features of his oddly paced, strangely emphasized and occasionally sing-song narration. In combination with the sometimes melodramatic prose, it often comes across as nearer to parody than history.
Thom Hath writes a great detailed book on Sister's Civil War exploits that shows as a true warrior, oustanding leader that inspired had men to achieve great results for th Union Calvary. His units engagement of JEB Stuart a Gettysburg was boring shirt of sheer courage. Great in n this historical view of Genal Custer.
