Summary
"This is not another chronological retelling of the Mexican War. Instead, it examines civil-military clashes during the war in light. of Jacksonian politics and the American citizen-soldier tradition, looking both at events that shed light on civilian authority over the military and at the far reaching impact of political ambition during this period (specifically, presidential power and the quest for the presidency)."--BOOK JACKET
