Singletary The Mexican War has long been overshadowed in the public imagination by that most popular of all American wars the Civil War And it has been swept under the carpet of national conscience as at worst a calculated land grab from a neighbor too weak to defend itself Otis Singletary's concise dramatic account of the war that won the Southwest and California for the United States is designed to evoke i. In HS I was an American History geek and for some odd reason I was particularly a geek about the Mexican War I first read this in about 1970 or so not that long after it had first been published I have not read it since 1975 and did want to go back to it again all these years later Published in 1960 it is a good brief history of this conflict I had forgotten that only about half the book is given over to the military expedition the other half is politics Which Singletary covers well No footnotes so the 162 pp of text reads uickly The Bibliography is horribly outdated depending on a lot of second hand accounts of the war from pre WWII publications like Justin Smith s mammoth 2 volume history of the war 1919 There are illustrations but he does not tell us where they are fromWhile Singletary is at times critical of America s Manifest Destiny and our politics he also falls into ethnic cliches The American volunteers often pretty rough around the edges frontiersmen are described as having indescretions the Mexicans are said to have committed atrocities In a few pages he nicely outlines the difference between the volunteers militias and actual trained military Something that should be kept in mind even in 2020Since John Eisenhower published his book on the Mexican War in 1989 So Far From God there has been interest in this conflict I ll be reading Amy Greenberg s A Wicked War 2012 I imagine she uses first hand accounts from the soldiers in the field I will probably pass on Jack Bauer s history which sounds like mostly a blow by blow account of every battle pretty much a stark military history This is a brief study so it is understandable but frustrating when he throws out something like a well deserved nickname of and then does not inform us why it is well deserved He mentions the WhigAbolitionistNew England literary protests against the war but gives no further detail Nice intro to the Mexican War glad I went back and reread it and saw how much of the book is given over to the politics involved
