A sabre is a British AFV, is it not?

One reason we may not appreciate Elgar right now is that we sure don‘t seem
like "The Land of Hope and Glory"...More like "The Land of Dumb and Dumber"!
And speaking of that, yes, dear old Autie Custer, Brevet Major General, met
his demise as a LT Col his Regular Army permanent rank.. Hard to believe,
but I actually had commanders who idolized Custer...must‘ve had the tank
hatch whack ‘em on the head one too many times!

Now to be fair, I don‘t think that Custer was a great leader of men. But as
a leader of irregular calvary, he wasn‘t a slouch. He had to have something
on the ball to be one of the youngest generals in the Civil war. Problem
with Custer was that "When in doubt, Charge!!" could be his personal motto.
It worked well enough for him in the war. Also he was lucky! Bad combination
at the end. I won‘t go into his personal faults. He had a pile of them and a
large number of his men and officers hated him. But if we look at the little
bighorn, he commanded to the end. His men couldn‘t have been placed better,
they died fighting in place, and he died with them. Yes, he screwed up.
Yes, he tackled the odds, but to be fair to him, in his personal history,
that worked! Call it luck, audacity or whatever. But it worked.
I have no great personal respect for the man. Personally I think that he was
undisciplined and a martinet when it came to his men. Not to mention an
immense ego. But when push came to shove, he could hold his own.
Just trying to be fair.

One reason for the idoltry may have been that E. Flynn played the Custer
role in one old movie version. And George didn‘t do all that bad as a Civil
War leader, IIRC, and didn‘t he finish at the botom of his class at West
Point - that must say something good about the gent. "In like Flynn."
And to another poster: Garyowen may well be the wee tune of the current 2nd
Bn Cdn Irish but it‘s much older than that.

That is a very accurate analysis of Custer, both as the man and the
commander. Although it wasn‘t his final moments that screwed his unit...it
was the collection of myopic, ego-induced decisions in the several days
before the Last Stand!
