In many respects, he was let down by Reno and Benteen.  His plan  conformed 
to the accepted tactics of the time.
 
You have to remember that at the time, Custer was perhaps the best Indian  
fighter in the army.  That's why the news of his death was such a national  
shock.
 
Best Regards,
Al Mackey

If not incompetent, what would you call his actions  at the Little Big 
Horn--a bad day at the  office?
