"The foremost historian of the Latin American military has written a short, readable, even-handed biography of Santa Anna as general. His thought-provoking analyses shed much new light on a seemingly over-explained subject. After Scheina's book, no reasonable reader will ever look at the Mexican general the same way again." -- Barbara A. Tennenbaum, editor-in-chief, ENCYCLOPEDIA OF LATIN AMERICAN HISTORY AND CULTURE
