First of all, Custer was not ambushed at the Little Big Horn. He saw the encampment and in his arrogance he had no doubt that he would conquer the "savages". So Custer disobeyed a direct command not to engage the Indians, and attacked. He was out thought, outmanned and outmaneuvered by not only the Sioux but the cheyenne, Arapaho and a few from other tribes.

Did Custer make the right decision at the Battle of Bighorn?

The encampment at the Little Big Horn included thousands of men, women and children. Custer went in with 2 other factions of soldiers though he did not wait for them to catch up. The men with him counted fewer than 300. Even if the men who were still circling around to reach their attack points had taken part in the battle, I believe, that the anger the Native People felt toward previous massacres would have left the Little Big Horn with a similar ending no matter what.Another ViewpointHow can the battle at the Little Big Horn be viewed as somebody's "right decision?" Everybody died. EVERYBODY. Custer was a prima donna and a fool, and he led his vaunted 7th into an inescapable bloodbath. Custer richly deserved his fate, but I pity the men who served -- and died -- with him.

Bloody battle in Belgium?

The Battle of Waterloo, just south of Brussels, took place on June 18th, 1815. Napoleon of France, with an army of 69,000 faced the English Duke of Wellington with one of 67,000. The battle took place all day and was decided in favour of the Allies (British, Prussians, Dutch) when the Prussian army of 48,000 men arrived. Napoleon lost 25,000 men killed or wounded and had 6,000 taken prisoner. Wellington lost 15,000 men killed or wounded. The Prussians lost 7,000 men killed or wounded. Napoleon surrended after the battle and the French monarchy was restored. I really don't think that is right. it doesn't fit into my crossword puzzle
