Chris D. Dishman conveys in a vivid narrative the intensity and drama of the Battle of Monterrey, which marked the first time US troops engaged in prolonged urban combat. General Taylor engineered one of the army's first wars of maneuver at Monterrey by sending the bulk of his troops against the weakest part of the city, and embedded press reporters wrote eyewitness accounts of the action for readers back in the States. Dishman interweaves descriptions of troop maneuvers and clashes between units using pistols and rifles with accounts of hand-to-hand combat involving edged weapons, stones, clubs, and bare hands.

Hoozah it's over
It may he helpful to get a Spanish speaking or at least Spanish knowledgeable narrator if your book is going to be dominated by Spanish locale and names. Not to mention his pronunciation of "huzzah" which I've never heard as hoo-zah before. A bit monotonous in the delivery.
