A Wicked War presents the definitive history of the 1846 war between the United States and Mexico - a conflict that turned America into a continental power. Amy Greenberg describes the battles between American and Mexican armies, but also delineates the political battles between Democrats and Whigs - the former led by the ruthless Polk, the latter by the charismatic Henry Clay and a young representative from Illinois named Abraham Lincoln. Greenberg brilliantly recounts this key chapter in the creation of the United States with authority and narrative flair.
“Greenberg’s probing account of this war reveals its drama - and its very modern complexity.”(Publishers Weekly)

The politics of the Mexican war
- Tad Davis
Great book, I learned alot and enjoyed every minut
Enlightening historical drama
Unique perspectives from well known figures in our country's history
The only thing I was not a huge fan of was how the narrator spoke with a "mexican" accent when quoting mexicans. It seemed to imbue character to a quotation that may have been taken out of context.
