Private Peter Thompson's eyewitness account of Custer's battle at the Little Big Horn has been published before. This printing of his account is annotated by Walt Cross, author of "Custer's Lost Officer; the Search for Lieutenant Henry Moore Harrington, 7th U.S. Cavalry". Cross' analysis of Thompson's controversial narrative with comments at the end of each chapter, allows the reader to ponder Thompson's account without intrusive comment. As a combat veteran Cross brings a fresh look at a soldier's account of the Little Big Horn campaign."Wonderful Stuff!...an important contribution to the literature of Custeriana." Dr. Stephen Bennett, Department of Political Science, University of Southern Indiana."You have done a credible job of rehabilitating the reputation of Peter Thompson."
