A nice patch to fill a gap in my knowledge

I like this short format. I often need a quick brushing-up on some era in history, preparing to teach, but I can't spare 18 hours to hear some disciplined work that captures deeper detail. Considering I live in former Spanish and then Mexican lands, captured by war from Mexico shortly before California statehood, my knowledge of this was slight. I intend to get more titles in this series.

Great Overview of Texan/Mexican Territories

Would you consider the audio edition of Hispanic America, Texas, and the Mexican War: 1835 - 1850 to be better than the print version?

Yes. The narrator is clear, concise and strong.


Any additional comments?

Quick moving, to the point and easy to follow. I recommend for anyone wanting to get a clear overview and understanding of the conflicts that went on during this historical development of lands in the U.S. and Mexico.
