Here's all you need to know about the Little Bighorn: the Indians had repeating rifles; Custer's men didn't; end of story.

Was Custer actually a Buffoon as depicted in Little Big Man?

No, he was a romantic dreamer who befriended the Indians, as per They Died With Their Boots On (1941).

C'mon, FC, get real.

Both sides of the spectrum have been discussed.
I don't think anybody is 100% right on this one.

Custer was undeniably vainglorious but he had some degree of military ability, as evidenced by his Civil War service and the Washita Campaign. His biggest mistake at LBH was badly underestimating the size of the Sioux/Cheyenne force he was attacking; it was the height of stupidity to charge into the Sioux camp without knowing where the main body of the Sioux forces were and without a proper accounting of their manpower. His subordinates - particularly Major Reno - weren't entirely blameless either.
