Praise
"[A]n impressive fictional account....Shaara offers superb impressionistic descriptions of...crucial campaigns....Parallels to Vietnam aren't forced, but are strongly felt throughout this simultaneously stirring and deeply cautionary saga."
From the Publisher
Annotation Set in 1847 during the Mexican-American War, this novel chronicles the horrors of a war that is seldom written about, the war fought for the cause of American expansion into Texas and California, and led by many of the officers who would become famous a few years later during the American Civil War.
Editors Note Thirteen years before the Civil War, eight thousand marines land in Vera Cruz bound for a fateful war against the Mexican army, including Winfield Scott, a vain general who made history in the War of 1812, and Robert E. Lee, a forty-year-old engineer as yet untested in battle.
