Suppose Custer had survived the massacre at Little Big Horn. Would he have blamed civilians in the Defense Department? This dramatization of the court-martial that never happened, based on Douglas C. Jones’ intriguing novel, stars Brian Keith as Custer’s defense attorney; Ken Howard; Blythe Danner, and James Olson as the colorful but tactically inept general.
