Storyline

A National Guard tank crew on war games suddenly find themselves back in time to June 25, 1876 the day General Custer fought and lost to the Sioux at the battle of the Little Big Horn. They report what they've seen and heard but the officer-in-charge is more than a little dubious about what they claim. They return to the area and when the attack begins they join the fight. When the commander goes to locate them, they find something else entirely. Written by garykmcd

The Convergence of the Twain
12 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

During routine National Guard maneuvers, three soldiers find themselves running the same course as the armies from the Little Big Horn and involve themselves in a return to Custer's Last Stand. They are hopelessly attached to the mission, despite the wishes of their Captain who thinks they have all gone crazy. They find the evidence that was historically accurate (two of them are fans of the history), and so they know what to expect. What they don't know is what their actual involvement in the whole thing is. They continue to explore, even though they realize they may be moving into a death trap. It has the usual Serlingesque ending. Somewhat satisfying and full of questions.
