Now in paperback, Shaara's bestselling novel carries readers back 13 years before the Civil War, when that conflict's most famous enemies fought together in the Mexican-American War.
From the Publisher:
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.
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.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"[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." 04/15/2000
