Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Retired brigadier general Eisenhower describes U.S. involvement in the Mexican Revolution and Wilson's confrontations with junta leader Victoriano Huerta and legendary bandit Pancho Villa. (July)
Library Journal
Eisenhower ( So Far from God : The U.S. War with Mexico , LJ 4/15/89) has written an excellent account of U.S.-Mexican relations from 1913 to 1917. By focusing on the principal leaders in Mexico and the United States, he presents a clear picture of the Mexican civil war and America's intervention. This clear, concise, well-written account allows the reader to see what happened and why it occurred. The author does not cast blame on either side but shows the strengths and weaknesses of each of the major participants. He explodes many of the myths surrounding the Mexican civil war. Unlike Robert Quirk's An Affair of Honor: Woodrow Wilson and the Occupation of Veracruz (1967), Eisenhower presents the complete picture of the major leaders and events surrounding this incident. For informed lay readers as well as scholars.-- Richard P. Hedlund, Ashland Community Coll., Ky.
