Commanche of the Seventh by Margaret Leighton

Award winning author Maragret Leighton follows the life of Commanche, the mount of Captain Miles Keogh of Company I.  Some of the writing is conjecture but much is based upon historical fact.  Written in 1957 the writing is of a different style from current trends which is refreshing.  There is also little political correctness which offers an alternative viewpoint. 

Commanche was the only surviving member of the Seventh Calvary that fought at the Battle of Little Big Horn.  What really comes across is that Custer was an ass.
