This is both fact neatly entwined with fiction. It is a classic recount of the Mexican-American War. Led by General Winfield Scott, many of the lower ranking officers will see duty in the Civil War, prominent among them are Lee, Grant, Johnston, Jackson, Beauregard, Longstreet, Shields, and Magruder. This is well worth reading as a prelude to Gods and Generals.
