Description

"The world has a new hero —actually an old hero reimagined — George Armstrong Custer, in this delightfully funny alternative history that's better, or at least happier, than the real thing."—WINSTON GROOM, bestselling author of Forrest Gump and El Paso "Droll satire, this is the West as it might have been if the Sioux hadn't saved us."—STEPHEN COONTS, bestselling author of Flight of the Intruder and Liberty's Last Stand "If Custer died for our sins, Armstrong resurrects him for our delight. Not just the funniest book ever written about an Indian massacre, but laughout loud funny, period. The best historical comic adventure since George MacDonald Fraser's Flashman."—PHILLIP JENNINGS, author of Nam-A-Rama and Goodbye Mexico "Crocker has created a hilarious hero for the ages. Armstrong rides through the Old West setting right thewrongs, andsetting wrong the rights, in a very funny cascade of satire, history, and even patriotism."—ROB LONG, Emmy- and Golden Globes-nominated screenwriter and co-executive producer of Cheers "Crocker's Custer, a milk-drinking, sharp-shooting master of disguises, takes us on a series of uproarious adventures in the persona of Armstrong...?rmstrong is an extraordinary hero— a military strategist, a courageous fighter and some sort of dog whisperer to boot. He's also a dashing romantic with a knack for making women swoon...I'll look forward to finding out where duty calls Armstrong next." —The Washington Examiner "I've thoroughly enjoyed Harry Crocker's latest, a satirical alternative history about Michigan's own George Armstrong Custer, simply and cleverly entitledArmstrong. In Crocker's world, Custer survived a butchering by Crazy Horse at the Battle of Little Bighorn and has become a Victorian paladin and celebrity, doing everything over the top and then some more beyond the top. Crocker knows his history, so his anti-history is knock-down, pain in the stomach, hilarious...Even within the slap-stick outrageousness, there lurk and hover very meaningful and subtle points and comments. In other words, Crocker has produced a fictional masterpiece."-BRADLEY BIRZER, theRussell Amos Kirk Chair in History at Hillsdale College "This is the kind of book young people should want to read, which will challenge them and widen their horizons. It is part history, part humor, part drama, and all-around entertainment."- JAMES ROBBINS, author of "Erasing America: Losing Our Future by Destroying Our Past." "H.W. Crocker has irresistible fun with George Armstrong Custer...a hilarious adventure." -- The American Spectator "If you like learning history while laughing,you'll like this book...marvelous satire."—DAVID LIMBAUGH, #1 bestselling author of The True Jesus and The Great Destroyer: Barack Obama's War on the Republic What if Custer survived the Battle of the Little Bighorn? What if he became a gun-for-hire?
