Michael O'Keefe produced this book set by drawing on research from roughly 3,000 books and 7,000 articles about George Armstrong Custer (1839-1876). The books detail events in Custer's life, including his experience in the American Civil War and his significant role in the Battle at Little Big Horn. O'Keefe's Custer is one of the most complete and detailed accounts of Custer currently available. O'Keefe himself has dedicated his life to the research, and currently serves as president of the Custer Battlefield Historical & Museum Association. The book includes a forward by Utley, who served in the National Park Service for 25 years and took on the role of Chief Historian from 1964 to 1972.
