Since the Mexican War happened so close to the War Between The States, not as much has been written about that war. This is a typical Jeff Shaara book that tells the story through the mouths of those who were there. I learned a lot that had been unknown to me previously.

As usual I was not disappointed with Jeff Shaara; his look at all these people in their earlier years before the Civil War is enlightening.

This is another one of the excellent Shaara historical novels. While the Mexican War is not one of the biggest or longest wars in our history, The author does a very good job of chronicling the Mexican War through the major soldiers involved. I only began reading historical novels in the last 2 years and the Shaara's have to rank up there with the best.

This was the 9th novel written by Mr. Shaara that I have read. Once again he brings history to life. We learn of the early days in the careers of soldiers who play critical roles in the American Civil War. Amongst those are Robert E' Lee, U.S. Grant, George Pickett just to name a few. I heartily recommend this book to anyone intersted in American History.

Jeff Shaara took you into the heart of the battles. He made you feel what the characters were feeling, and made you see what the soldiers saw around them. It shows you that battles aren't all about the victories, it's also about your friends and comrades that have risked and sacrificed their lives. At some points in the book, I was actually getting nervous about what would happen next.

This is the 5th book by Mr. Shaara that I've read recently and he continues to amaze me how interesting he makes the events and characters come to life. I didn't know much about the Mexican-American War before this book and didn't realize how important the outcome was to our history. Also you see how future Civil War leaders began their military careers working together not knowing years later many of them would face each other on the battlefield. A really great read with plenty of action and a great insight into Robert E Lee as a young officer.

This protrayes and excellent view into the Mexican war as seen through the eyes of a Young Robert E. Lee. It also gives aus a peek as to his development that made him such a powerful leader in his later years during the Civil War.

Jeff Shaara has done all who have loved the Civil War series he and his father gave us a great service with "Gone for Soldiers". Not only does this book offer us the same almost-personal view of the Mexican War, it introduces the people who played such an enormous role in the later Civil War. All of these books have given me a much better sense of history than even more detailed military history books have given, and I find I'm now able to read those other more scholarly works with more enjoyment, having finally grasped the context and the sweep of events.
