After all The Battle of The Little Big Horn did not take place in a vacumn. I have visited the battle site twice and read many books on the subject but Kershaw presents a new way at looking at this battle and his many idea's and explanations gives additional points at viewing this battle.

After all The Battle of The Little Big Horn did not take place in a vacumn.

Kershaw has concluded the Little Bighorn fight cannot be rationally assessed in isolation to the battle of the Rosebud, which preceded it by eight days.

Custer lost 268 men against 30 to 40 Indians killed. Kershaw has concluded the Little Bighorn fight cannot be rationally assessed in isolation to the battle of the Rosebud, which preceded it by eight days. The same Indians worsted a stronger US Army column commanded by General Crook.

Throughout "Red Sabbath," the author, Robert Kershaw, criticizes Custer's movements and decisions at the Little . Overall, however, it is not a good book about the Battle of Little Bighorn.

Throughout "Red Sabbath," the author, Robert Kershaw, criticizes Custer's movements and decisions at the Little Bighorn. Not only does he denigrate Custer, he also troubleshoots General Crook's and Sheridan's actions during that campaign. Aug 05, 2015 Donnacha rated it really liked it.

Analysing the causes of Custer's defeat from the perspective of a professional soldier, this book looks at the multitude of factors that were behind the US Army's failure in their campaign against the native Americans. ISBN13:9780711033252. Release Date:July 2008.

Red Sabbath authoritatively blends contemporary Indian and soldier . The book is a fresh approach to a battle that has long defied definitive conclusions.

Robert Kershaw has recreated the ‘feel’ of the battle, a series of dispersed and chaotic company actions, which the Indians overcame piece-meal. We'll assume you're ok with this, but you can opt-out if you wish.

The Battle of the Little Bighorn, known to the Lakota and other Plains Indians as the Battle of the Greasy Grass and also commonly referred to as Custer's Last Stand, was an armed engagement between combined forces of the Lakota, Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho tribes and the 7th Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army.

There are few battles in the sometimes bloody history of the expansion of the United States in North American during the Indian Wars that are more famous than Little Bighorn. The romantic view of Custer's last stand against marauding hordes of Indians has achieved iconic status but the reality was somewhat different, as recent research has shown. The Battle of Little Bighorn was the culmination of a process of attrition between the Native Americans and European settlers. On 25 June 1876 this clash of cultures was settled by force of arms as the 7th Cavalry under Custer came upon a huge Indian camp by the Little Bighorn River. The resulting battle was the stuff of legends, but legends based on misconception and hearsay - no members of the 7th Cavalry survived to tell their tale and the Indians recorded their triumph in pictographs and oral memory, long undeciphered by historians. In Red Sabbath, military historian Robert Kershaw analyses the causes of Custer's defeat from the standpoint of a professional soldier, and examines the multitude of factors that lay behind this setback of a modern US Army's campaign against an unsophisticated foe. Bringing a forensic examination to the subject, this new view of the battle will be required reading for all those with an interest in the military history of the USA and of the career of that most famous of historical figures, General Custer. Drawing evidence from a wide range of sources, including contemporary reports of the battle, personal analysis of the battlefield and the most recent archaeological investigations, Kershaw explores the background to the battle and its results. His analysis debunks many of the myths about Custer's abilities as a military commander and previous generalizations of this savage encounter, providing a unique insight into the Battle of Little Bighorn.

Kershaw nails it! He identifies the lack of Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield(IPB), combat effectiveness of the Regiment and fatigue that ultimately leads to mission failure. He also skillfully identifies likely the first clear case of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the US Army which causes Major Reno to mentally breakdown during the battle. Without a doubt the best analysis of the Indian force structure, tactics and leadership to date. Kershaw takes the after action analysis of the Battle of the Little Bighorn to a new level.

Phain
This is an excellent book that gives the reader an early history of events leading to the Little Big Horn. It was apparent that the Indians were no longer running when meeting a large American forces, but instead standing and fighting almost to the death. This was apparent in the Red Cloud Fettermen battle and later the Battle of The Rosebud where Crook was almost defeated by the same tribes that would, in only a few weeks, distroy Custer.

Kershaw's maps, pictures and detailed drawing of the events are really good and present themselves in a way that causes one to think of the possible many errors Custer made on his way to the Little Big Horn.There are several editing errors in this book but none I believe takes a way from a work that presents Custer's many tactical errors in this battle. After all The Battle of The Little Big Horn did not take place in a vacumn. I have visited the battle site twice and read many books on the subject but Kershaw presents a new way at looking at this battle and his many idea's and explanations gives additional points at viewing this battle.

Along with excellent detailed drawings, mays and a excellent use of tactical and logistical ideas makes this book a wonderful read, and an injoyable one. This works clearly belongs to nay serious student of the Little Big Horn and I believe will add new idead that are hard to dispute.

I'm only 79 pages into this book and there are too many errors making this a very difficult read because everything must be checked and verified (it takes away from the pleasure of having faith in the author and just being able to read and enjoy).
Error 1: p. 10 - Quote attributed to White Bull (Cheyenne) is really Young Two Moon
Error 2: p. 10 - Quote attributed to Red Horse is really She Walks with Her Shawl
Error 3: p. 36 - soldiers were paid $13/month, not a day
Error 4: p. 37 - Lt. James Sturgis graduated West Point on June 16, 1875, not May 1867
Error 5: The author consistently refers to Phillip Henry Sheridan as Phillip N. Sheridan
Error 6: Although Shoshones participated in the Battle of the Rosebud, Washakie was not one of them
It's not too good when you lose faith in the author, especially when it pertains to relaying accurate information.
And these are the errors I caught, there might be others.

There are numerous errors throughout this book, but I must add the following one to my earlier review:
Kershaw relates the following story on page 178.
[John] Stands In Timber sees Standing Bear get too close to the soldiers and killed. Wow!!! First of all, John Stands In Timber was a Cheyenne tribal historian and born eight years after the battle. Secondly, the warrior killed was named either Breech Cloth or Long Road. Standing Bear survived the battle and his narrative can be found in The Sixth Grandfather by DeMallie. I have to wonder if Kershaw actually read his source books or just skimmed through them looking for information. This book has potential but the author needs a lot of help in revising it and cleaning up all the errors. I'm available.

To H. Price:

I read your critique of my review. However, you are in error, and so was J.W. Vaughn. Vaughn, and several other authors, assumed Washakie was in the battle based on some newspaper writer speaking of a Shoshone chief. Historians wrongly assumed it was Washakie. However, if you read John G. Bourke, On the Border with Crook (Bison Book edition, p. 334), he clearly states that Washakie didn't appear until July 11. The Rosebud battle occurred on June 17. So I stick by my statement -- Washakie was not in the Battle of the Rosebud. And if you insist that he was, find me a first-hand reference stating that he was.

Qucid
My compliments to Robert Kershaw for writing a short but comprehensive -- and well-reasoned -- study of one of the most controversial episodes in American military history: the Battle of the Little Big Horn. I don't know that Kershaw has pioneered any particularly startling new interpretations of the battle, but he has synthesized a solid account of the battle, enlivened by focusing his narrative at many points upon individual experiences, drawn from both white and Indian primary sources. I think it can be well appreciated by someone as yet unfamiliar with the intricacies of the Little Big Horn affair, yet it still offers food for thought for those of us who have spent years pondering those events.

Books like this one really pisses me off. There are so many mistakes that stick out you dont even have to be a student of the battle to spot them. There are so many it makes you wonder if the author did any research at all or even if these mistakes are made on purpose to mislead the readers to full fill the authors agenda.
If you want to read about the battle by an author that just reports the facts and doesnt take sides there are a few great books out there to read.
Cavalier in Buckskin by Robert Utley (the 2nd printing the updated version) Little Bighorn by Robert Nightengale for the Indian story Lakota Noon is very well done but the best books out there is To Hell with Honor by Larry Skelnar and A Terrible Glory by James Donovan.
Custer Vindicated is also good as well is Custer by Robert Monoghan
Dont waste your time with this one because how can you beleive anything in here with so many mistakes that just jump out at you.

Golden Lama
For "naiche" from Brooklyn who wants to edit this book, you are incorrect regarding at least one of your alleged error finds in this book. Washakie most certainly did fight at the Battle of the Rosebud, as reported by no less an authority than J.W. Vaughn in With Crook At The Rosebud (see page 62 of the hardcover edition by Stackpole Books copyright 1994).
