The writing is clear and easy to read and the decisions and dilemmas faced by each of the profiled men involved really flesh out what went into our declaring war on a neighbor nation in contravention of everything that we had espoused before. It's a great way to tell the story. Being a San Franciscan, I enjoyed reading this book. There was more to that war than just acquiring dry desert land in the Southwest--there was the huge Pacific port of Yerba Buena on San Francisco Bay that the US government coveted.

As a close follower of Mexico and Mexican history I find this book very informative about all the U.S. politics behind the annexation of Texas and the Mexican War. Although an academic book, it is written in a style that is easy to read yet with considerable detail that does not weigh it down but rather spices it up. It is very informative about the political scene in the United States as this time in history. I recommend it highly. If you are a U.S. history or Mexican history buff you will really enjoy it.

A great resource for America hating, white guilted individuals who have no sense of well being and then must resort to separating themselves from reality to realize some sort of self worth.
