"It's hard to imagine anyone else as the brooding, monomaniacal commander of the doomed Seventh Cavalry." — TV Guide
"Cole acquits himself with class, imbuing Custer with the vainglory that was his undoing. Garbed in white buckskin, he shows a subtle ambivalence at ridding the plains of Indians. He admires them but understands that their extinction is a means to his self-aggrandizement." — Rick Kogan, Chicago Tribune
