By Peter Stines on July 16, 2002
Format: Hardcover
This is a useful reference for anyone doing research on Mexico's military. It could have used more period illustrations, paintings, lithographs, etc, but it is still worth having in your personal library. The "soldado" is frequently depicted as either an imbecile or a cringing coward, but the facts do NOT bear this out. The defence of the Port of Tampico in 1829 and the Defence of Chapultapec and Churubusco in 1847 all dispell the Hollywood myth. The European connection and the financial woes of the army are explored and, of course, Santa Anna plays a MAJOR roll during the 19th century. If you are a student of military history, go for it !
