Book Synopsis
On the morning of June 25th, 1876, Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer made a fateful decision to attack a large Native American village camped on the banks of the Little Big Horn River. It was a decision that would cost him his life, the lives of 268 of his men, and the lives of over 60 Native Americans defending their right to live free. Myths, mysteries, and legends of this fight have grown for over 142 years, elevating a lonely patch of dirt and grass, dotted with white and brown tombstones, to mythological proportions. How did this apocalyptic clash of cultures happen? What is true, and what is conjecture? What really happened? Experience the entire battle as it was told by the survivors. Foreword by award-winning author and historian, Frederic C. Wagner III with additional research articles from the author.

I really enjoyed reading this screenplay and recommend it highly. It is a fast paced and draws you in. I like how it has Walter Camp interviewing the survivors then flashes back to what happened on June 25th and beyond. It is the most accurate movie about Custer’s last battle and the most detailed. Most of the previous movies over the last 100 years only cover about 15 to 30 minutes on the entire June 25th day as a climax to their movie. Being a member of the Little Big Horn Associates and an amateur historian on the American Civil War and Indian Wars since I was a kid, I have seen almost all the movies on Custer as well as read most of the available books and research material available. One thing to note about this screenplay is it unbiased toward Custer, Reno, and Benteen. The movie also goes into the struggle on Reno Hill after the defeat of Custer. Since Chris is a combat vet, I also really enjoyed his insight in the appendixes.
I am looking forward to seeing the movie this summer.
About The Author
Author bio image
Chris Hoffert is an Army combat veteran with over twenty years of personal study and research on the Little Big Horn battle and is an award-winning director with over 15 years of film experience. He is also a Custer Battlefield Preservation Committee lifetime member and maintains membership with the Little Big Horn Associates. Chris frequently engages with other authors, historians, and battle students online to keep history relevant and alive while furthering more in-depth discussions into one of the most ambiguous battles of all time. Serving as the videographer for the U.S. Cavalry School for over seven years, Chris is heavily entangled in the Little Big Horn history. He spends several weeks each year at the battlefield with period reenactors conducting filming designed to bring history to life in a way that books simply cannot.

Chris’s digital animations, 3D terrain analysis, and film work on the battle are designed to help usher historical research into the modern era by allowing students of the battle the ability to see things in a way that has never been done before. This interest in animation and 3D design began while working on the documentary ‘Contested Ground’ where Chris created moving maps of the entire battle to accompany the narrative video. This has since progressed into timeline analysis videos and full 3D modeling of the battlefield. Chris graduated Cum Laude from the Academy of Art University, receiving a B.F.A. and an A.A. in motion pictures and television. David Worth, a Hollywood director, author, and professor heralded Chris as “The Sergio Leone of Montana” for his ability to churn out quality gritty period films on micro-budgets.
