Ten Years With Custer, A 7th Cavalryman's Memoir (SC)

Click to enlarge

This book, edited by Sandy Barnard, tells the life of John Ryan. John Ryan was part of the 7th Cavalry under Custer, and his memoirs provide detailed accounts of life as a soldier. Ryan was not only a survivor of the Battle of the Little Big Horn, but was a Civil War veteran as well, and this book is wonderful for giving readers an understanding of what life was like for the average soldier.

This 314 page book is an excellent read, and as Kevin J. Connelly noted, "If you are looking for an enlisted man's perspective on the Indian Wars period 'Ten Years With Custer' is a good choice. If you are looking for a new insight into the 7th Cavalry, then 'Ten Years With Custer' is a must."
