Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. The opening campaign of the US-Mexican War transformed the map of each nation and shaped the course of conflict. Armed with a broad range of Mexican military documents and previously unknown US sources, Douglas Murphy provides the first balanced view of early battles such as Palo Alto and Resaca de la Palma. He reassesses previously covered territory and also poses new questions. Why did Mexico establish its defenses south of the Rio Grande while claiming territory north of the river? What was Mexico s strategy in the campaign against the United States? What factors most affected Mexico s defeat? In confronting these questions, Murphy shows that the campaign was a complex chess match with undercurrents of political intrigue, economic motivations, and personal animosities as much as military action. Two Armies on the Rio Grande will transform our understanding of the US-Mexican War. N° de réf. du libraire

Synopsis : The opening campaign of the US-Mexican War transformed the map of each nation and shaped the course of conflict. Armed with a broad range of Mexican military documents and previously unknown US sources, Douglas Murphy provides the first balanced view of early battles such as Palo Alto and Resaca de la Palma. He reassesses previously covered territory and also poses new questions. Why did Mexico establish its defenses south of the Rio Grande while claiming territory north of the river?

In confronting these questions, Murphy shows that the campaign was a complex chess match with undercurrents of political intrigue, economic motivations, and personal animosities as much as military action. Two Armies on the Rio Grande will transform our understanding of the US-Mexican War.

Critique: "For over twenty years Douglas Murphy has worked as an historian at the Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park, the only federally-protected site from the US-Mexican War. Drawing upon battle reports, journals, and letters from both US and Mexican archives, Murphy provides a rare glimpse into the minds of the leaders of the opposing sides and skillfully narrates the inciting events that ultimately led to conflict. "Two Armies on the Rio Grande" fills an important gap in the historiography of the US-Mexican War and sheds considerable light on a poorly understood campaign that ultimately changed the course of world history."--Michael Scott Van Wagenen, author, "Remembering the Forgotten War: The Enduring Legacies of the US-Mexican War"
