The Mexican-American War (1846-1848) was an event of major consequences, not only for the countries involved, but for the entire North American continent. It was also the first war to be documented with photographs and the first to be witnessed by press correspondents.
Rich in period illustrations and photos, this fascinating book recounts the war from both sides of the conflict. In addition to the extensive core text comprised of eyewitness accounts and documents from the wartime period, notes and captions illuminate and explain the material. From great political and military strategies to individual soldiers’ perceptions (the endless marches under searing sun or torrential rain, in wool uniforms and shoes made to fit either foot ) the book shows the enormous complexity of the war from many perspectives.
More than 200 images illustrate the text, many of them lithographs based on images drawn by the soldiers themselves.
