The Mexican War has faded from our national memory, but it was a struggle of ... Show more

texas war with Mexico

by weneedrain on Jul 9, 2009

Very good if you are a military history buff or totally uneducated about that war. Dissappointing in that there is not much detail about about the personalities of the generals.Was hoping there would be more as to how this war influenced the conduct of the civil war.Get a good map of Mexico when you read this. One is not included.
