Sintesi dell'editore

On May 13, 1846, the United States Congress declared war on Mexico. Although the Mexican-American War lasted only 18 months, its consequences were profound. Mexico lost nearly half of its territory to the United States: Texas, California, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, and Colorado. Some historians have described this conflict as America's first step toward empire. More ominously, this war first raised the issue of whether slavery should be permitted in the newly acquired territories, an issue that would help speed America toward the Civil War.

Shameful Depiction of Mexican Characters

The characterization of Mexicans throughout this performance accentuating a supposed Mexican pronunciation is tantamount to a blackface performance to depict African Americans. Shame on you!

George C Scott is great

The book is OK. George C Scott made it better because of his style of reading.

A great primer for an overlooked war

Some of the voices were a bit corny at times, but I still found it engaging. A good, quick educational read.

A brief history of the Mexican-American War

George C Scott’s reading of this history is exemplary. It’s a great introduction to the beginnings and end/consequences of the war that ultimately raised its ugly head in the civil war. A great precursor to anyone wanting a brief but thorough overview.

Concise

This is an excellent summation of the Mexican-American War.
It also acknowledged the supremacy of Winfield Scott.

Too short

A few various voice actors. This was good. All was quite good really. Just too short.
