Now this looks like one heck of an interesting book, especially for someone like myself who cut his teeth on H. Irving Hancock's tales of Dick Prescott and biographies of West Point luminaries such as MacArthur and Patton. People tend to associate Custer and Pickett with the military disasters that cost them (and a lot of their subordinates) their lives, while forgetting that both men had quite distinguished careers as heroes. I'll let you know if it's all the reviews have made it out to be, unless somebody out there beats me to it.
