more as  an example of what a psychopath is capable of if you put him in 
exactly the  right situation.
I probably don't mean that the way it sounds, but it's as  close as I can

I don't think the show portrayed Custer as a psychopath.  Nor do I  view 
him as one.  An aggressive, ambitious cavalry officer, yes.  And  one pretty 
much following standard military doctrine of the day.
