Display last git commit comment


Often during a commit ($ git -commit -m ""), I wish to read my last comment to remember what progress I have made. Is there an easy way to directly access the last commit message through command-line? (I'm using Windows.)


git show

is the fastest to type, but shows you the diff as well.

git log -1

is fast and simple.

git log -1 --pretty=%B

if you need just the commit message and nothing else.
