Best unbiased history of the period
I have read several books on the Mexican War, and an earlier work on the participation of the Irish battalion in that conflict. However, this is the first which clearly shows the temper of the times: U.S. expansionism, the Irish Famine, the anti-Catholic and anti-immigrant furor of the 1840's. It is a wonderful book and we've decided to adopt it at our school as a supplemental text. It is accessible, clearly written, with good photos, cartoons and maps of the period.
